Qatar’s success in ending disparities in the expatriate labour system was highlighted at the third Qatar Law Forum yesterday.
Speaking to Qatar News Agency (QNA), CEO of Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre (QICDRC), Faisal Rashid al-Sahouti, said the forum discussed the topic of labour. He referred to Qatar’s success in this regard, particularly the recent closure of the complaint against Qatar by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), which recognises the important steps the State has taken to develop a modern labour system that is fair to both employers and employees.
Al-Sahouti added that Qatar aims to be a regional idol on issues such as anti-corruption, enabling displaced people, fighting modern-day slavery, strengthening the role of judicial institutions and promoting the concept of financial inclusion.
Al-Sahouti affirmed that the rule of law is of top priority for Qatar, stressing that the authorities and government institutions carry out their duties and responsibilities without interference, hence consolidating the principle of the rule of law.
Separately, during a plenary session QFC Authority Chief Executive Officer Yousuf Mohamed al-Jaida stated that “the rule of law is a critical component in advancing financial inclusion globally; it can help protect human rights, facilitate equality and enable citizens and businesses to safely and freely fulfil their goals.”
He continued: “In order to achieve the ambitious agenda of advancing financial inclusion and closing the global financial inclusion gap, cross-sector collaboration and public-private partnerships to successfully implement, measure and advance rule of law over time in developed and developing markets are necessary.”
