3 September 2014

We have raised our concerns about the safety and wellbeing of migrant workers with the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy at Ministerial and Ambassadorial level. We welcome the serious manner in which the Qatari Government is responding to concerns and fully support Qatar’s intention to reform the current labour law. We are encouraging the government of Qatar to put forward a timetable for passing and implementing the proposed legislation and stand ready to support these efforts where we can.
