Concerns raised about job losses in Gulf at Loka Kerala Sabha

Thiruvananthapuram Jan 13: Concerns over the overseas job prospects of Indians echoed right from the inaugural session of the Loka Kerala Sabha being held in Thiruvananthapuram on January 12 & 13.
Leading NRI businessmen M.A. Yusuff Ali and Ravi Pillai, who  spoke about the problems during the inaugural session here on Friday, also stressed the need for ease of doing business and better investment opportunities for NRKs in the state.
They said that the government should initiate skill development activities for overseas job aspirants.
"The localisation policies being initiated by various Gulf countries are creating far-reaching consequences to the job prospects of Malayalis abroad.
The state government should initiate steps like single window clearance for ease of doing business in the state and  come up with investment opportunities for NRKs that offer better returns," said Mr. Yusuf Ali.
