According to Moussa, the two nations have been partners in promoting each other’s labour and development over the years, and the new (and timely) opportunity will only solidify this relationship, as shared in a report by KUNA.
Despite the crunch on hiring foreign labour in the Gulf State, this development will certainly not escape the public eye especially now that a number of legislations have been put in place to regulate the labour demographics in the country.
However, where there is opportunity for Ghanaian nationals, the government must also examine what the stakes are as this is simply how business is done.
With the current number of expats being dealt with in Kuwait as of the moment, it’s quite surprising to find that the government is still looking for new sources of labour to bring into the market at this point.
This might send a confusing message to foreign nationals who are studying their chances of getting employment in Kuwait.
