Ministers of Labour and Social Affairs of the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) started yesterday their 23rd session at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi city. Patronized by H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, the inaugural meeting was opened by UAE minister of labour Dr. Ali Abdullah Al Ka'abi.

"The current session is particularly significant in strengthening integration and cooperation among GCC members states to further enhance their ability to face emerging challenges posed by regional and international developments", said Al Ka'abi. "The current session is back dropped by conflicts... Since Arab countries are facing extremely volatile and complex circumstances, GCC member states must further boost joint cooperation, integration and coordination", he noted.

Bahraini minister of labour and chairman of the previous session Dr. Majid bin Mohsen Al Alawi stressed that Bahrain must warn against what he called "the negative effects of rising rates expatriate labour forces on GCC labour markets" and against "the financial bleeding induced by huge transfers and remittances to other countries" and "the pressure on services sectors and infrastructures".

The current session, GCC ministers of labour and social Affairs will be discussing a number of issues related to the situation of labour markets in their countries and will conclude the gathering tomorrow with relevant recommendations. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
