Report: Qatar agrees to hire 10,000 skilled Indonesians

Plans are reportedly underway to hire 10,000 skilled and semi-skilled Indonesian workers to work in Qatar, according to the country’s new ambassador in Doha.

The agreement to open up more positions for Indonesian professionals and craftspeople follows a visit by President Joko Widodo to Qatar in September.

The move would significantly increase the 50,000 strong Indonesian population currently living and working in Qatar, Qatar Tribune reported.
