Expatriates living in Kuwait could soon be residents of cities populated by foreign workers, after the country’s parliament approved a draft bill on the establishment of a company to build residential areas for expat employees.
The announcement follows years of uncertainty over the building of special expatriate workers’ communities, the bill having first been presented to parliament in 2003, the Arab Times reported.
MP Dr Maasouma Al-Mubarak noted that the bill could help tackle the problem of overcrowded accommodation for expatriate employees and suggested the workers’ cities should be built by six companies to avoid a monopoly, the paper said.
The passing of the bill comes after lawmakers appealed for single labourers to be kept away from families, raising concerns that areas where large numbers of unskilled workers live are linked to rises in crime.
But Dr Al-Mubarak called on her fellow politicians to respect the dignity of foreign workers and commented that a study should be implemented to look into the impact of forcing expats to live together in small labour towns.
The Kuwaiti government is also considering ways to stamp down on visa trading.
