The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is on the process of replacing expatriate employees with Kuwaitis in different ministries and governmental bodies as part of its ‘Kuwaitization’ plan.
Speaking to the press, the commissions’ Chairman Ahmad Al-Jassar said that CSC, at present, is targeting the Kuwaitization of 3,140 jobs of the total employment in the country. He added that it includes 15 job descriptions fitting the category, with the medical field being an exception.
The programme, which was approved during the fiscal year 2017/2018, aims to provide Kuwaitis with job opportunities as part of the country’s developmental plan, Jassar noted.
The government has given instructions to each state department to achieve complete Kuwaitization of their respective staff by 2022, which is proven difficult for certain departments such as the education and health ministries which heavily rely on technical expatriate employees.
