RIYADH — Labour Minister Nidal Katamine on Monday stressed the importance of recruitment strategies that seek to boost and regulate the labour market.

In an address he delivered at the 2nd Arab Forum on Development and Recruitment in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Katamine also highlighted the need to eliminate child labour and to support programmes that provide employment opportunities for the young.

On the sidelines of the conference, Katamine met with several Arab labour ministers with whom he discussed ways to unify efforts to deal with the unemployment problem.

The three-day forum, attended by government officials and representatives of different labour organisations, seeks to arrive at general framework to support development and recruitment.
