Egypt outlines plan to find jobs for returning workers

Gov’t outlines plan to find jobs for returning workers: The government is planning to have expatriates and workers returning from abroad apply to a database designed to help them find jobs in Egypt, the cabinet said in a statement. The Immigration Ministry will create a database of resumes that the Planning Ministry will use to assimilate the returning expats into the local labor market as part of a “short-term plan.” Expats will be able to find jobs through private sector recruitment platforms, set up their own projects through state-backed incubator Rowad 2030, or as workers in the administration’s national projects.
