The reducing plan is a step towards resolving Kuwait’s demographic imbalances and stop hiring expats without proper studies.

In the meanwhile, the parliament’s replacement and employment committee demanded that government bodies has to create new jobs for Kuwaitis who are holders of undesired qualifications, especially those with intermediate school certificates, as they number 7,037 out of 12,000 unemployed people.
