Kuwait's jobs sector must be re-organized to follow up with the developments in the modern world, according to Minister of Social Affairs and Labor and Minister of State for Planning and Development Affairs Hind Al-Sabeeh. The country can re-organize jobs by following a draft law called (Economic Activities Law), which allows national economic bodies to be independent on financial and administrative levels, while also granting them the right of self-financing, Al-Sabeeh, representing His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah at the national conference on modern state jobs from an economic point of view, said on Monday.
The two-day conference is aimed at introducing the country into the field of knowledge economy, which is a part of Kuwait's development plan, said the minister. Al-Sabeeh, meanwhile, stressed the importance of investing in knowledge to develop the administrative and technical side of jobs, by creating partnership with the private sector as well as foreign investors.
Knowledge economy focuses on turning leading ideas and research into vital products that can contribute to the country's GDP and support the budget, she added.
On his part, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Planning and Development (SCPD) Khaled Mahdi said that knowledge plays a huge role in modern economy nowadays, as it provides creativity and development in the field.
Modern countries have developed economic and administrative jobs that can follow up with the different global changes, said Mahdi. He noted that the conference aims to promote the role of educational, scientific, media and legislative institutions in brining awareness to society on the importance of engaging in knowledge activities, as well as present means of introducing creativity in the field of education.
