KUWAIT CITY, Dec 14: The head of the Kuwaiti Entrepreneurs Association, Eng Saeed Al-Manea, and the association’s delivery committee, praised the decision of the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled, to amend decisions related to licensing delivery companies and granting them facilities, which improve the business environment and support small and medium enterprises. Al-Manea told Al-Qabas daily that the new decision raised the ceiling of vehicles owned by the single license holder, whether from the SME owner and even others in the private sector, to 90 vehicles, after it was limited to 30 vehicles and 15 vehicles only, in light of the high demand for transport activity and delivery of goods.
He pointed out that regulating the labor market in the delivery sector, starting from the beginning of next year, defining patterns and forms of uniforms and night vision signs for vehicles, and distinguishing them from others, is a step that helps activate more measures that support entrepreneurs and combat menial workers (bulk labor) entering the profession.
He stated that the continued infiltration of domestic workers into the delivery sector, especially workers in the profession of drivers, must be stopped immediately, as it is a form of new visa trade. He went on to say, the entry visa to Kuwait under the name of a domestic driver has become a new door for entering Kuwait and working for delivery companies, indicating the importance of increasing the volume of campaigns to control violators, and called for harsher penalties for employers and violating workers.
He affirmed the association’s cooperation with the Ministry of Interior and the Public Authority for Manpower in developing the necessary proposals and supporting directions to achieve the vision in supporting national cadres, their work and products, increasing investment opportunities and supporting Kuwaiti youth activities in support of the national economy.
