Lebanon Introduce Online Portal For World Cup Jobs

As Qatar prepares to host the World Cup, Lebanon on Monday created an online platform to make it easier for its citizens to find employment there.

The action, which comes only a few weeks before the World Cup begins on November 20, aims to assist in addressing Lebanon’s spiraling unemployment as it experiences its worst-ever financial crisis.

The World Cup and other long-term jobs are related to the platform for employment in Qatar in 2022, according to the labor minister, Mustafa Bayram.

The efforts of his administration to included this “tackle the issues of unemployment” in Lebanon, he claimed.

After discussions with his Qatari counterpart on the sidelines of the Arab Labor Conference in Cairo last month, according to Bayram, the jobs platform was officially launched.

He claimed that Qatar was “rushing” to hire “a huge number of Lebanese.”

“They place a high priority on the World Cup… and it’s crucial that we support them in this,” he said.

According to a joint government-UN poll, Lebanon‘s official jobless rate increased by over three times to reach 29.6 percent at the beginning of the year.

Lebanese job seekers will be able to register their talents on the new portal, providing Qatar‘s private sector with a pool of potential employees.

According to Bayram, the Beirutian government would not participate in the employment process but will assist selected applicants with passport renewals.

This promise comes at a time when the authorities have been obliged to put off the issuance and renewal of official papers for months due to a lack of travel documents.

After years of unethical behavior and poor financial management, Lebanon‘s economy crashed in 2019, devaluing the local currency by 95% and driving up poverty rates.
