10,000 expat workers register with LMRA in Bahrain


This is only 10 per cent of the people the authorities expect to register, a source told the Tribune.


“The number of people submitting fingerprints and other information at our desks is increasing by the day,” the source said.


A majority of those registered during the first two days of the festival were employees from the construction sector.


On the third day a number of families and other expatriates at the executive levels walked in and registered with the LMRA.


A number of female workers garment factories also registered in the past two days.
The Immigration and Passport Affairs Undersecretary, Shaikh Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, is scheduled to visit the festival today. “He will be briefed on the festival,” the source said.


As part of the cultural activities lined up, an Indian dance troupe will perform today. The cultural activities organised by expatriate communities have played a major role in attracting people to learn about the LMRA and its role in the labour market from January 2008.
