Qatar requests more Indonesian workers for 2022 World Cup

Qatar hopes Indonesia will send more workers to the country to fulfill the labor need of extensive development projects ahead of the 2022 World Cup, an official has said.

Indonesia's ambassador to Qatar, Muhammad Basri Sidehabi, conveyed the Qatari government's message following a meeting with local officials in Doha on Monday.

Sidehabi met with International Cooperation Department director Saleh Saied Al-Shawi Al Marri, Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs' ( MOLSA ) Permanent Recruitment Committee chair Captain Abdullah Khalifa Al-Mohanhannadi and the Interior Affairs Ministry, said the embassy's counselor for political affairs Boy Dharmawan as quoted by Antara.

To follow up on the proposal, a number of Qatari government officials will visit Indonesia on May 14 with the assistance of the Indonesian embassy in Doha, Dharmawan said.

He said the visit would specifically aim to introduce opportunities in Qatar for Indonesian workers and to discuss the issue with the government's ministries and local communities.

During the meeting, Dharmawan added, Ambassador Sidehabi conveyed Indonesian policies, including that of terminating the sending of foreign workers to individual employers in the Middle East.

Previously, at the beginning of May 2016, Sidehabi had consulted with Manpower and Transmigration Minister Hanif Dhakiri to discuss employment opportunities in Qatar as well as the impact of the employment restrictions.

Hanif has asked for the Indonesian representatives in the Middle East, especially in Qatar, to focus on handling the legal rights of the Indonesian migrant labor force.
