Gulf Times - - QATAR -

UK am­bas­sador Ajay Sharma has hailed the re­forms and mea­sures ini­ti­ated for pro­tect­ing the in­ter­ests and wel­fare of ex­pa­tri­ate work­ers in Qatar over the last few months.

The am­bas­sador said many coun­tries and in­ter­na­tional labour fo­rums have lauded the ini­tia­tives made in Qatar in re­cent months to pro­tect the coun­try’s ex­pa­tri­ate labour force.

“Mea­sures like the Wage Pro­tec­tion Sys­tem and sanc­tion­ing over­seas cen­tres for med­i­cal-re­lated pro­ce­dures for ex­pa­tri­ate work­ers have come in for ap­pre­ci­a­tion from many coun­tries and in­ter­na­tional fo­rums,” he said.

The en­voy also wel­comed the re­cent de­ci­sion to do away with exit per­mits for a large sec­tion of ex­pa­tri­ates.
