KUWAIT CITY, May 5: In a move aimed at addressing the shortage of domestic workers in Kuwait, Bassam Al-Shammari, an expert in domestic labor affairs, revealed that discussions between Kuwait and Ethiopia are expected to resume soon to finalize a memorandum of understanding regulating the recruitment of workers from Addis Ababa, reports Al-Jarida daily. Al-Shammari emphasized the significance of this step in opening up a new market for recruiting domestic workers to meet Kuwait’s labor market demands. Once the memorandum of understanding is signed, local recruitment offices are prepared to initiate recruitment contracts with counterparts in Addis Ababa.

Al-Shammari highlighted the importance of diversifying the sources of domestic workers to create a balance in the market and alleviate shortages. He stressed the need to accelerate the signing of agreements with Ethiopia and other potential markets to ensure a steady supply of workers and prevent market disruptions. Al-Shammari also addressed the issue of cybercrime related to domestic worker services, cautioning against dealing with fraudulent parties offering hourly services. He emphasized the urgency of addressing the shortage of domestic workers and called on the Public Authority for Manpower to increase memorandums of understanding with exporting countries to meet the demand. Furthermore, Al-Shammari urged the relevant authorities to raise awareness among recruitment agencies, office owners, and employers about the new executive regulations governing domestic workers. These regulations aim to protect the rights of domestic workers and have been widely accepted within the recruitment community.
