Qatar's labor reforms model for other countries – envoy

The Manila Times, Qatar, 15 December 2021 - QATAR'S pioneering labor law reforms, which benefitted Filipino workers, served as a model for other countries in the Middle East, Dr. Ali Ibrahim Al-Malki, ambassador of Qatar to the Philippines, said.

The envoy said his country hosts over 242,000 Filipino workers who enjoy "all rights and privileges."

There are also more than 200 Filipino companies operating in the Qatar market, he added.

"Based on the spirit of principles of justice and equality, the State of Qatar has always valued the roles played by Filipino workers and their contributions to the development of Qatar," he stressed.

In a message on the occasion of Qatar National Day, Al-Malki said, "In the context of legislative reforms, wise leadership paved way to reforming labor policies, which constituted a new era for Qatar and regional labor market."

"It is a roadmap described by many countries as a 'giant step' echoing the State's commitment to giving migrant workers more freedom and protection, providing employers with more options," he said.

"These reforms offered an example for other countries in the region to emulate. They have been praised by many countries in the world and international organizations."
