The Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) has laid down plans to provide a number of new jobs to Kuwaiti youths in the private sector where they will work by themselves in order to support national economic development efforts and to raise the value of work, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources.
Sources pointed out the job opportunities are available on condition that they will be given to the national labor force, not the expatriates.
Fish stalls to be leased at symbolic prices
Sources said the fishing and fish marketing sector is one of the important employment fields where stalls for selling fish will be leased to Kuwaiti youths at symbolic prices. Sources explained the location of stalls in the market will be determined through daily draws, inadicating the location is not fixed.
Sources added this is in line with the idea of supporting the Kuwaitization policy through its application in the fishing sector. Sources went on to say the government also intends to provide employment by leasing mobile phone shops, car spare parts and ornament shops to Kuwaiti youths at symbolic prices provided they manage the business themselves.
