KUWAIT CITY, June 12: The Director of the Public Authority for Youth Dr. Mishaal Al-Rabee revealed the ongoing preparations to launch a Kuwaiti youth employment platform that will bring together the private and government sectors to prepare young people to work in the private sector, reports Al-Anba daily He indicated that Kuwaiti youths joining the fields of employment they desire and with rewarding salaries would encourage young people to engage in the private sector’s labor market.
On the sidelines of a meeting organized by the authority with the participation of a number of government agencies concerned with employment in the steering committee for the management of the work-makers project, and representatives of a number of Kuwaiti banks, the World Bank and the Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Al-Rabee said, “We are trying to secure jobs for our youth with rewarding salaries that are higher than those in government agencies. We believe that the certificate in itself will not enable young people to achieve their ambitions and their future, because skill, craft and profession have become the most important. With the cooperation of the Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Planning Dr. Khaled Mahdi, we were able to identify career paths to start providing jobs”.
On the other hand, the acting Undersecretary of the Civil Service Commission Abeer Al-Duaij revealed that, “The head of CSC Maryam Al-Aqeel is in the process of addressing CSC to request an increase in the trial period for Kuwaiti youth wishing to work in the private sector from 92 days to six months, while retaining their position in the central employment system if they wish to be nominated to work in government agencies”.
