Achievements made by the State of Kuwait for protecting workers have been extolled by International Labor Organization (ILO), said Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of State for Economic Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh on Tuesday.


Speaking to KUNA following a meeting with ILO Director-General Guy Ryder on the sidelines of the ILO annual conference, Al-Sabeeh added that the meeting discussed the developments made by Kuwait's Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) in terms of resolutions or laws to protect workers in Kuwait.


Ryder commended such developments and stressed the necessity of transferring them into GCC member states and all Arab countries, she noted.
She said that there was a consensus between Kuwait and ILO on holding a bilateral meeting to strengthen joint cooperation to review all plans drawn up by PAM in favor of workers.


The minister stressed Kuwait's keenness on achieving excellence regarding the protection of workers' rights, including conducting permanent contacts with the embassies of countries providing workers to the State of Kuwait.


She also pointed to direct contacts with concerned bodies in these countries aiming to confront brokers of recruitment offices that exploit the citizens of low-income countries.
Al-Sabeeh affirmed that Kuwait has been giving a priority to support the Palestinian people for decades, pointing out that the State offers jobs for Palestinians.
