Middle East Filipinos

360,000 jobs for Filipinos

Posted by Admin on March 1, 2007

Good news for the Philippine economy, but a bit of bad news for our contrymen because they will be deprived of the services of professional Kabayans, hoping that these estimates be reached, inshallah!!!

Filipinos hope to fill 8,600 jobs in Bahrain

The Philippines is looking to fill about 8,600 jobs in Bahrain over the next three years.
The projected manpower demand of the country, which maintains strong relations with Bahrain, excludes housemaids as the Department of Labour and Employment (Dole) targets higher quality and better paying jobs, a source in Manila told our sister publication the Gulf Daily News.

“The Philippines overall is looking to fill the projected manpower demand of more than half a million jobs in nine Middle Eastern countries over the next three years, as a boom in the jobs market is expected once again in the important region,” he said.

Most of the jobs are in energy, petrochemical, construction, manufacturing, telecommunications, hotels and restaurants, aviation, steel, tourism, medical and service industries.

Dole estimates that 360,000 of these jobs will be available from this year to 2009 in Saudi Arabia; 44,340 in the UAE; 42,851 in Qatar; 32,041 in Kuwait; 10,500 in Oman; 8,600 in Bahrain; 7,500 in Libya; 1,000 in Lebanon; and 600 in Jordan.
“Right now, housemaids are not included in this estimation,” said one source.
“Unskilled workers, usually maids, earn as little as $100 (BD37.800) in the Middle East, with many employers expressing dismay over the new minimum wage of $400 (BD151) imposed by the Philippine government last month.
“Dole estimates that technical/skilled workers could earn up to $2,000 a month (BD756) and professionals up to $6,000 (BD2,268) in the region.”

Large numbers of Filipino workers in the Middle East are employed as housemaids, except in Libya.

While maids account for only 0.5 per cent of the total Filipino population in Libya, they account for 98pc in Jordan, 89pc in Lebanon, 55.5pc in Kuwait, 48pc in Oman, 40pc in Bahrain, 32pc in Qatar, 20pc in UAE, and 13pc in Saudi.
