Thousands of newly recruited Indian nurses are expected to arrive in Kuwait soon amid growing cooperation between the two countries, Al Rai newspaper reported quoting an Indian envoy.
The newcomers will join private hospitals in Kuwait as part of efforts to increase the numbers of Indian nurses working at the country’s health sector, Al Rai newspaper quoted Indian Ambassador to Kuwait Sibi George as saying at a recent Indian mango festival.
The diplomat said that the Indian embassy is seeking to increase the number of Indian nursing staff also working at Kuwaiti government and health insurance hospitals.
“The cooperation between India and Kuwait with regards to healthcare sector has strengthened during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said the Indian ambassador Sibi George.
The diplomat added that he would meet in the next weeks with Kuwaiti officials to discuss implementation of a memorandum of understanding on recruiting Indian domestic workers in Kuwait.
