Construction companies permitted to build interim labor houses outside suburban areas

The government assigned Kuwait Municipality to coordinate with the Finance Ministry and the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM) to establish temporary housing units for workers of companies which execute projects outside suburban areas. It also allowed companies with government contracts to provide housing if they have over 1,000 workers.

During its weekly meeting on Monday, the Cabinet also assigned authorities concerned to take plant trees with the aim of blocking dust from reaching Sabah Al-Ahmad and Al-Khairan residential areas, as well as highways. Furthermore, the government assigned Kuwait Municipality to study the establishment of storage areas in different areas in the country to end storage in basements of private houses and apartment buildings.
