KUWAIT, Aug 23 (KUNA) -- A Kuwaiti government program paired up with Gulf Insurance Group (GIG) on Wednesday to interview some 50 young job hopefuls, 15 of whom were granted jobs almost instantaneously.
Speaking to the press after signing a memorandum of understanding with GIG, the Secretary General of Kuwait's Manpower and Government Restructuring Program Fawzi Al-Majdali said that it was imperative to support the private sector as it looks to hire more national employees.
He pointed out that the purpose of the government program was to ensure that the private sector would employ the lion's share of the national workforce.
The government official added that the program has developed a close rapport with an array of companies and businesses with the aim of luring young Kuwaitis to the private sector.
Kuwait has introduced numerous measures to encourage its youth to join the private sector in an effort to ease the burden on the government sector. (end) nfa.nam
