Kuwait Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh speaks to the press.

Kuwait's Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh said Tuesday her country has been elected as a board member in Arab Labor Organization (ALO) for the 2018-2020 term.

Al-Sabeeh, also State Minister for Economic Affairs, made her remarks on the sidelines of the third day of the 45th session of the Arab Labor Conference in Cairo. She expressed hope her country becomes a main factor in implementing sustainable development goals, and attaining Arab people's aspirations and hopes.

Meanwhile, Al-Sabeeh mentioned a Gulf ministerial meeting was held earlier to discuss house maids' issue, adding the participants agreed to take immediate actions to resolve it. The meeting decided to launch and implement an automated system between labor-sending countries and GCC-member States, she said.

Such an important measure would alleviate various burdens on Gulf citizens, she said. Al-Sabeeh also stressed the importance of launching the system fast and fixing the recruitment's price with the sending countries.

Measures and procedures regarding the system are due for approval ahead of the Geneva meetings, slated for late May, said the Kuwaiti minister. Kuwait is keen on implementing sustainable development's items, particularly the ones related to women issues, she said.

Kuwaiti women gained all their rights and reached advanced positions inside and outside the country, added Al-Sabeeh.
