KUWAIT CITY, May 23: Domestic labor affairs expert Munir Al-Usaimi has stressed the need to address the shortage of domestic workers in the country, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Al-Usaimi disclosed that he recently discussed the issue with acting Kuwaiti Ambassador to Ethiopia Nawaf Al-Mutairi and a number of Ethiopian officials. He said a Kuwaiti delegation from the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) and owners of domestic labor offices will travel to Ethiopia on May 27 to sign the final agreement on sending domestic workers to Kuwait.

He affirmed that a few weeks after signing the agreement, the domestic labor offices will be able to bring Ethiopian workers to Kuwait. He said these workers will be tested to make sure they are free from physical and psychological diseases; stressing that any worker found to be inflicted with such diseases will be rejected. He called on HH the Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmad Al- Abdullah Al-Sabah to immediately address the issue of hiring domestic workers from the Philippines, as these workers are skilled and preferred by employers, so their return will greatly contribute to the ongoing efforts to solve the domestic worker crisis.
