MGRP pre­pares new pro­posal to in­crease em­ploy­ment of na­tion­als in pri­vate sec­tor

Prob­lem of pop­u­la­tion im­bal­ance to be solved

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 15: The Man­power and Gov­ern­ment Re­struc­tur­ing Pro­gram (MGRP) has pre­pared a new pro­posal on the em­ploy­ment of na­tion­als in the pri­vate sec­tor en­ti­tled, “Cen­tral Em­ploy­ment un­der Gov­ern­ment and De­vel­op­ment Project Con­tracts,” re­ports Al-Rai daily.

The pro­gram said it de­cided to send the doc­u­ment to the par­lia­men­tary Re­place­ment and Em­ploy­ment Cri­sis Com­mit­tee. It ex­plained that the pro­posal is a sys­tem for cen­tral em­ploy­ment of na­tion­als un­der con­tracts signed by the gov­ern­ment or any of its agen­cies, and the de­vel­op­ment projects. This means that em­ploy­ment is pos­si­ble only through MGRP and the uni­fied sys­tem whose mech­a­nism and fol­low up have been adopted by the pro­gram.

The pro­gram stressed this will help in­crease the num­ber of na­tion­als em­ployed in the pri­vate sec­tor, while re­duc­ing the rate of un­em­ploy­ment and solv­ing the prob­lem of pop­u­la­tion im­bal­ance since na­tional man­power will re­place ex­pa­tri­ate work­ers.

It added the pro­posal will pro­vide job se­cu­rity for those em­ployed un­der gov­ern­ment con­tracts by find­ing al­ter­na­tive jobs for them. Other notable ad­van­tages in­clude guar­an­tee­ing fair­ness in em­ploy­ment due to the com­mit­ment to ap­point ap­pli­cants based on regis­tra­tion pri­or­ity, spe­cial­iza­tion and aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tions.
