May 10, 2014, 9:14 am

Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor will transfer the Capital Labor Relations and Inspection Unit from its current location inside Behbehani Building in Sharq to its permanent site within the premises of Capital Labor Department, reports Al-Jaridah daily quoting an informed source. He said the step was taken based on the latest decision taken by the Council of Ministers, which instructed ministries, departments and agencies to reduce expenditures.

Indicating that this decision will assist in preventing huge expenses and public budgets, the source explained that the cost of leasing buildings is very high such that multi-storey buildings cost about KD 500,000 annually. He stressed that the Minister of Social Affairs and Labor Hind Al-Sabeeh ordered the transfer of the unit to the Capital Labor Department where several offices were vacant and unused. The minister aims to cut down as much expenditures as possible such as by discontinuing the leasing of houses for official use, so that the conserved expenditures can be used to develop other sectors especially those related to the public.
