Bahrain praised for protecting workforce

The GCC labour ministers have praised the level of progress Bahrain has achieved in terms of protecting its workforce.

They also commended Bahrain for maintaining the lead in US State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report 2023, for the sixth year in a row.

This came as Labour Minister Jameel Humaidan led the Bahraini delegation to the ninth meeting of the GCC Labour Ministers Committee, in Oman.

Mr Humaidan stressed that Bahrain’s participation in the meeting affirmed its keenness to support joint Gulf action and co-ordinate efforts among member states to improve Gulf labour markets and exchange successful experiences, especially with regard to plans for employing the national workforce and facilitating the transition of Gulf manpower between Gulf labour markets.

The minister noted the role of the meeting in activating and implementing the decisions issued by the Supreme Council in the field of labour and studying the development of legislative tools in the GCC countries to keep pace with developments in labour fields.

The ministers discussed the measures taken by member states to facilitate the employment and movement of citizens of the GCC countries for work and what they have done towards equality with the citizen workforce, in addition to enhancing co-ordination between the GCC countries in international forums.

They also discussed developments in labour markets, the effects of technological development, changes in work patterns, potential impacts on the workforce and developing recommendations to reduce job losses through continuous learning policies, training and rehabilitation programmes.
