“After the official announcement of the Saudi government allowing women to drive cars from June 2018, JVE has been wanting to support women and decided to provide training on driving light-duty trucks with automatic transmission model until they get their licenses. These activities are considered a part of Hino’s ‘Total Support Philosophy’ seeking to be real business partners with our customers,” the company said in a press release.
JVE said it always strives to support government decisions and work for the implementation of the Vision 2030. “JVE is also doing everything possible to reduce the unemployment rate as targeted in the Vision 2030 by providing opportunities for males and females in this program using a safe, environmentally friendly (Euro3), and easy and smooth state-of-the-art automatic transmission truck,” it said.
