Creating Productive Jobs for GCC Nationals: Challenges and Opportunities

MAY 25, 2021

Welcome

The creation of productive and well-paid private sector jobs for nationals has become a big policy challenge for GCC economies. Private sector companies are concerned about their competitiveness if they cannot continue to rely on a large pool of expatriate workers.

In this webcast we explore the differences in wages and productivity between expatriates and nationals, the challenges of labor market nationalization current policies in GCC economies, and how to meet the need for private sector jobs for nationals through innovation and productivity.

Key Take-Aways:

  • An objective evaluation of the effectiveness and shortcomings of current nationalization policies in the GCC
  • Recommendations on necessary improvements in labor market policies in the region for stimulating private-sector jobs
  • Empirical analysis of the difference in productivity between citizens and expatriate workers and the degree of substitution between them
