Senior officials from the Ministry of Employment, Labour and Social Security, and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, are currently in Doha to participate in the inaugural Doha Dialogue.

This important meeting, initiated by the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the African Union (AU), aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences and ideas to enhance inter-regional labour mobility.

The Doha Dialogue, held on the 21st and 22nd of May 2024, serves as an important platform for public discourse between African countries, which are the origins of many migrant workers, and key Middle Eastern destinations such as the GCC countries, Jordan, and Lebanon. The dialogue aims to strengthen cooperation efforts and foster partnerships that benefit all parties involved in the labour migration process.

In the discussions, participants will talk about and exchange new ideas and best practices that can improve the contractual work cycle for migrant workers. The main focus is on establishing human rights-based protection measures to ensure mutual benefits for both the sending and receiving regions.

The initiative is expected to result in actionable strategies and partnerships aimed at improving the conditions and protections for migrant workers. By fostering a cooperative approach.

The Doha Dialogue aspires to create a more sustainable and humane framework for labour migration that acknowledges the contributions of migrant workers and ensures their well-being.

As the discussions continue, participating nations are optimistic that their joint efforts will result in significant improvements in labour policies and practices, benefiting millions of workers and their families across the regions.
