Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

KUWAIT: Pales­tinian Am­bas­sador to Kuwait Rami Tah­boub said Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Bader Al-Essa will visit Ra­mal­lah in Novem­ber to sign an agree­ment to re­cruit 400 Pales­tinian teach­ers in var­i­ous spe­cial­ties. Speak­ing dur­ing a din­ner ban­quet held to the honor PalSat Chair­man Ahmed As­saf and his ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion, Tah­boub said that the agree­ment was ready and only needs to be signed, but the visit was post­poned be­cause of Essa’s tight sched­ule.

La­bor shel­ter

Act­ing Di­rec­tor of the Public Author­ity for Manpower Ab­dul­lah Al-Motoutah re­ceived the Am­bas­sador of the Philip­pines to Kuwait Re­nato Pe­dro Villa, who dis­cussed la­bor-re­lated co­op­er­a­tion be­tween both coun­tries. Villa ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion for host­ing 160 Filipinos at the ex­pa­tri­ate la­bor shel­ter and hailed the ser­vices they re­ceived. Both sides also dis­cussed the prob­lems of Filipino la­bor­ers at the em­bassy shel­ter and the pos­si­bil­ity of trans­fer­ring them to the author­ity’s shel­ter.

Re­tire­ment

Health Min­is­ter Dr Ali Al-Obaidi yes­ter­day re­ferred more of­fi­cials to re­tire­ment, in­clud­ing the min­istry’s public re­la­tions and me­dia man­ager Faisal Al-Dous­sary, the un­der­sec­re­tary’s of­fice man­ager Dr Adel AlAli and four nurs­ing staff mem­bers.

In­fra­struc­ture

Min­istry of Public Work’s un­der­sec­re­tary Awa­tef Suleiman Al-Ghu­naim yes­ter­day signed three in­fra­struc­ture agree­ments for Gar­nada, Sabah Al-Nasser and An­dalus, in ad­di­tion to lay­ing the main sewage line be­tween Surra and Rig­gae at a to­tal cost of KD 5,862,845.

As­sess­ment

The ‘Kuwait Needs’ cam­paign’s monthly re­ports for Au­gust and Septem­ber showed the as­sess­ment of seven gov­ern­ment bod­ies - the Min­istry of So­cial Af­fairs and La­bor (MSAL), Public Author­ity for Manpower, Min­istry of Com­merce (MoC), Public Author­ity for Agri­cul­tural Af­fairs and Fish Re­sources (PAAAFR), Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity, Min­istry of Elec­tric­ity and Wa­ter (MEW) and the Di­rec­torate Gen­eral of Civil Avi­a­tion (DGCA) - were ex­cel­lent in terms of these bod­ies’ re­sponse to cit­i­zens’ com­plaints. The re­port also showed that the finance and awqaf min­istries were as­sessed as ‘good’, while the in­te­rior, health and public works min­istries in ad­di­tion to the En­vi­ron­ment Public Author­ity (EPA) showed lit­tle re­sponse to com­plaints. Mean­while, the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion (MoE) and Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try (MoCI) lacked any re­sponse to public com­plaints. Com­ment­ing on the re­port, Min­is­ter Hind Al-Subaih said that it con­firms the spirit of team­work pre­vail­ing at MSAL that helps achieve suc­cess in pro­vid­ing bet­ter ser­vices to the public.
