Qatar is gearing up for the World Cup in a big fashion and the country is on the verge of completing the infrastructure work. As a result, the nation will be switching over from a construction stage to an operational stage. This demands a shift in the quality and type of workforce being employed in different parts of the country. Qatar has extended these requirements to Pakistan, who will be sending a number of personnel in the field of IT, hospitality, traffic control, and even military. Sayed Zulfi Bukhari is the overseas Minister for Pakistan and he has admitted that Pakistan will be contributing a significant amount of workforce for the competition.
Most of the Pakistanis who end up coming to Qatar or other countries are involved in unskilled labour. “We sent workforce pertaining to development and construction skill, there is a bit of break of one, two months at the moment, after which we are sending workforce specialised in operational skills. We are a top priority for Qatar’s FIFA 2022 World Cup,” said Bukhari. Pakistan’s economic situation is in disarray and the latest collaboration will help spice the economy.
