44 thousand more job opportunities have been offered to Sri Lanka by Qatar.
With this, the percentage of Sri Lankan workers in Qatar in comparison with other expatriate workers rises to 22%. During the first quarter of this year 15,000 jobs opportunities were offered to the Sri Lankan workers. Additional General Manager of the Foreign Employment Bureau A.M. Ruhunage said that this would assist in earning foreign exchange as well as retaining a low unemployment rate.
The job opportunities have been granted as a result of the bilateral agreements entered between the two countries.
