The Shura Council, chaired by Speaker HE Hassan bin Abdullah Al Ghanim, on Monday discussed the issue of getting benefit from retirees in the labour market.
During the session, the Council reviewed the request for general discussion submitted by a number of Their Excellencies members regarding benefiting from retirees in the labor market.
Within this framework, the Speaker of the Shura Council indicated the importance of this issue, as it touches on an important segment of society, which has contributed significantly to the labor market and still has the energy to contribute to development efforts.
The Shura Council speaker affirmed that the proposals submitted by the previous council were taken into account and implemented on the ground, as His Highness the Amir of State of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani issued the social security and military retirement laws last year, noting that the request for the current general discussion seeks to follow up developments in this file, and to improve the reality of retirees according to developments in order to achieve their aspirations and hopes.
For their parts, members of the council pointed out the need to create an appropriate and supportive environment to benefit from retirees in the labour market, given that they are an important human element that has contributed significantly to the development process and many of them are still energetic, and thus they are ready to give and contribute effectively to supporting the national development process.
They noted the necessity of benefiting from the accumulated experiences of the retirees, who worked in various and varied jobs and professions, which made them competent and acquired knowledge that can be benefited from, reminding of the consequences of losing those capabilities and neglecting the role of retirees, which affects them psychologically and morally.
The Shura Council members stressed the need to localize expertise and benefit from the potential of retirees, noting the necessity of avoiding the use of external expertise if there is national expertise capable of carrying out the duties required to contribute to the labour market.
To achieve this, they pointed out the need to count the numbers of retirees, classify their experiences and the areas in which they can contribute, and work to establish a database that includes all the information necessary to benefit from these experiences.
