Al-Zamil, a former deputy minister of commerce, will replace Abdullah Al-Mobty.
Also, two new deputies of the president have been elected.
They are Saleh bin Hasan Al-Afaliq, chairman of Al-Ahsa Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and Hamdan bin Abdullah Al-Samrain, chairman of Al-Jouf Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
