JVE, Hino to train Saudi women to drive trucks

Jamjoom Vehicles and Equipment (JVE), distributor of Hino Motors in Saudi Arabia, will offer training to women to drive light-duty trucks.
It is the first such training program in the Kingdom.
This initiative is designed to support women who want to become a part of the workforce of small businesses such as food trucks and delivery of light parcels.
Hino Motors is a Japanese manufacturer of commercial vehicles and diesel engines of the Toyota Group headquartered in Hino-shi, Tokyo.
“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.

Emaar to build ME’s largest Chinatown in Dubai

Emaar has announced a landmark development that is expected to further strengthen UAE-China relations, coinciding with the historic visit of President Xi Jinping of China to the UAE.
To honor Chinese expatriates in the UAE and further bolster business ties with China, Emaar will develop the Middle East’s largest Chinatown within the retail district of Dubai Creek Harbor, its six-square-kilometer mega-development, only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the Burj Khalifa.
“The retail precinct will occupy a central location within Dubai Creek Harbor — a destination which will be home to the world’s new icon, Dubai Creek Tower, and encompass vibrant lifestyle elements. Set by the Dubai Creek waterway, elegantly designed homes in Dubai Creek Harbor will offer spectacular views of the city’s dramatic skyline, the waterfront and the Ras Al-Khor Wildlife Sanctuary — home to over 450 animal species and migratory birds, including pink flamingos,” Emaar said in a press release.
