Default Question on Construction in the Gulf

Curious on who does what

Most of the labourers are Asian; what % is South East Asian?
When I was there, all the labour was Indian/Pakistani/Afghan/Bangladeshi

Are there any labourers from Arab or SubSaharan countries?

-
Now the site foreman
Any particular ethnicity predominates?
When I was there, I recal seeing non Gulf Arab nationalities as the head chap on site . I guess that would be the foreman or superintendent or manager?

-

Saw the occasional Westerner, assumed they were engineers (Structual, Civil) , Architects or experts in certain fields and processes.

-

Are there any noticeable number of Chinese labourers in the Gulf?

Where are you right now if you have to ask a question like that? Are you not here in the Gulf?
Chinese labourers tend only to be employed by Chinese contractors.

Lol, I hadn't realised it until now ; such a difference a typo makes. Should read " So how prevalent ".
