Over two million Indian expatriates now live and work in Saudi Arabia, the country’s deputy labour minister Abdul Wahed Al-Humaid has reportedly claimed.
The figure makes the Indian expat community the largest such group in the country, according to Mr Al-Humaid, who made the comment in an interview in Washington, USA, last week.
The minister was in the US capital for a meeting of the G20 labour and employment ministers and while he was there called on the Indian government to inform its workers of their rights and obligations before they consider relocating abroad for employment.
"We do not want them to be subject to exploitation due to lack of information or misunderstanding," he said, according to the Financial Express.
"On the one hand Indian workers are contributing to the economic development of Saudi Arabia and we appreciate that.
"On the other hand, we are offering job opportunities to two million Indian people. Therefore, we are benefiting the Indian economy and relieving the unemployment problem in India," he said.
