An earlier report had mentioned that the Minister of Public Works and Minister of State for Housing Affairs Dr. Rana Al-Faris had arrived on a plan to terminate all expat employees in the Ministry by the end of this fiscal year.

This initiative is inline with Kuwait’s plan to reduce the number of foreign workers in the country, and provide more job opportunities to nationals to fill up the jobs that were so far occupied by non-Kuwaitis.
