Default Interesting article on Indian expats returning from the Gulf

Worth a read if you have a few free minutes. 500,000 Keralis are expected to return to their region in the next few months.

A very informative article written from an Indian expat's perspective.

They quote 5 million Indians in the UAE... that's about 100% of the population... what's with these erroneous reports all the time?

A reply of sorts on the errors in print

I guess they meant to say the Arabian Gulf including KSA, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait.

its a pity that rules on being sent to prison for non-payment of debts do't apply to the directors of the big devolpment companies in the UAE.

Do we now for sure if construction workers are included in any stats or are they simply not considered resident?

Things are so rosy in Oz...

Treasurer Kevin Foley says a rise in unemployment in South Australia is unavoidable in the current economic downturn.

But Mr Foley would not project how high the unemployment rate could go.

Last month the unemployment rate increased by 0.1 of a per cent to 5.6 per cent, a full percentage point higher than the national rate.

Mr Foley says over the next 12 months Australian industry and the economy faces severe shockwaves rarely seen before.

"We have the greatest financial crisis in the world, it has reverberated and spun around the world and has hit Australia," he said.

"The reality of that is the nation is bracing itself for a very difficult economic period for which there will be an increase in unemployment, that is a fact of life."

Not only from the Gulf...

Malaysian plan to oust foreign workers

There is dramatic evidence from one of Asia's fastest-expanding economies of the downturn's severity. A senior minister says the government wants to send back 60% of Malaysia's two million foreign workers, the BBC's Robin Brant reports.
