‘Services of ten expats terminated in last 4 years’

PAM committed to CSC decisions tied on Kuwaitization

Minister for Economic Affairs Mariam Al-Aqeel

KUWAIT CITY, July 7: State Minister for Economic Affairs Maryam Al-Aqeel revealed recently that the services of ten expatriate employees of Public Authority for Manpower were terminated in the last four years, reports Al-Rai daily.

In response to a parliamentary question in this regard, she explained that the authority is committed to abiding by the two decisions of Civil Service Commission (CSC) concerning implementing Kuwaitization (replacement) policy and the relevant regulations for Kuwaitization of all governmental jobs.

The minister highlighted that the use of the services of non-Kuwaitis was aimed to modernize the establishment and running of PAM as well as due to its dire need for some professional specializations which are not available among the citizens who are registered at CSC for employment. She said the move to replace expatriate employees with Kuwaitis is being carried out in coordination with CSC based on the applicable laws.

Meanwhile, she indicated that the total number of grievances and complaints filed by Kuwaiti employees of PAM in the last two years was 1,083.
