KUWAIT CITY, May 7: The Public Authority for Manpower is intensifying its efforts to streamline the labor market and refine the process of recruiting foreign workers through a series of regulatory measures. Spearheaded by a civil government committee comprising experts from various fields, this initiative aims to bolster Kuwait’s workforce while ensuring efficient recruitment practices.

Sources privy to the matter disclosed to Al-Rai that the committee, comprised of representatives from the Manpower Authority, the Ministries of Interior, Foreign Affairs, Higher Education, Kuwait University, and specialized public benefit associations, convened to deliberate on strategies for enhancing the recruitment process. Of particular focus were technical professions essential to Kuwait’s economic landscape.

“The committee assessed the critical technical professions demanded by the labor market, with a view to devising tailored recruitment frameworks for each,” revealed the sources. They further elaborated that implementing these proposed mechanisms would unfold gradually, initially targeting medical, educational, engineering, legal, and financial professions.

Efforts to gauge the labor market’s needs will be channeled through the committee, which will encompass all nationalities eligible for employment in Kuwait. Among the proposals under consideration is the prerequisite for academic certificates to undergo prior approval, ratification, and equivalence by official authorities and Kuwaiti embassies before the issuance of new work permits.

Additionally, the committee is contemplating the incorporation of accredited professional experience certificates, ranging from a minimum of three years for certain professions to five years for others. This would be complemented by a professional practice certificate endorsed by relevant authorities, along with the successful completion of a professional practice test.

As Kuwait endeavors to optimize its labor force, these measures underscore a concerted effort to ensure the quality and competency of recruited professionals, thus fortifying the nation’s workforce and advancing its economic goals.
