KUWAIT CITY, Oct 5, (Agencies): According to informed government sources, the Kuwaitization decision will be implemented this year to replace expatriates working in government jobs based on a plan set by the government to address the imbalance in the demographics and with the aim of reducing the number of non-Kuwaiti employees in government agencies annually over a period of five years, reports Al-Anba daily.

They explained that the year 2021 is the last year for the implementation of this plan. The requests of a number of government agencies to postpone the application of the Kuwaitization process were rejected. Postponement of this process in the judiciary facility is due to the fact that it is an authority that is not subject to the Kuwaitization decision.

The rate achieved in the jobs related to forensic evidence, prevention and rescue stood at 99 percent compared to the target rate of 98 percent. The second indicator was that the Kuwaitization decision did not achieve the target percentage in some job groups with a slight difference, including social, educational and sports services, information systems and technology, maritime jobs, literature, media and public relations, law, politics, Islamic affairs, development and administrative follow-up jobs, and statistics. and administrative support.
