283 expats including Indians laid off due to new policy in Kuwait

kuwait

KUWAIT CITY: International reports reveal that Kuwait's Ministry of Public Works has recently terminated 283 expatriates as part of the country's drive towards Kuwaitization in government sectors. Sources within the Ministry confirmed the dismissals, indicating a significant reduction in expatriate staff over the last three and a half years with only 242 expatriates remaining as of August 17, 2023.

The decision to oust expatriates from supervisory and leadership roles aligns with the government's policy, as the Cabinet mandates the exclusion of non-Kuwaitis from such positions within the Public Works Department. This move reflects a broader initiative aimed at implementing Kuwaitization across various government departments causing expatriates, notably Indians, to lose their jobs and return to their home countries.

Kuwait's commitment to expanding indigenization into more sectors signals further changes in the job landscape in the upcoming years. This recent action falls in line with the government's strategy to prioritize local employment within governmental bodies.
