KUWAIT CITY, Sept 9: The minister of oil is holding high-level talks with senior officials in the state to avoid what he called 'a looming crisis' following reports some workers in the oil sector are contemplating to go on strike to protest the salary hike which has been approved for them by the Civil Service Commission, reports Al-Anba daily.

KUWAIT CITY - Results of a comparative study conducted by the World Bank recently on salaries of citizens in the region revealed that Kuwaitis receive higher salaries than the nationals of other countries in this part of the world, reports Al-Rai daily quoting sources.The bank has warned the Kuwaiti government against approving any proposal to increase the salaries of citizens while the country depends solely on oil as its main source of income.

It has highlighted the fact that 84 percent of oil revenues mentioned in the first chapter of the budget has been allocated for salaries; hence, the need for Kuwait to look for other sources of income to meet the requirements which will be stipulated in this chapter in the future.
