Saudi Post issues new stamp to commemorate Hajj 2018

JEDDAH: The Saudi Post Corporation has released a special memorial stamp for this year’s Hajj season, and for the first time has issued three riyals and five riyals stamps.
Saudi Post President, Eng. Mohammad Al-Jabbar said the corporation issues memorial stamps to document important events witnessed in the Kingdom in various fields.
He noted how stamps are a communicative means that reach countries and people around the world, and how it is important to highlight the Kingdom’s achievements, national efforts and historical moments through their issuance.
The stamp design was crated with the slogan of this year’s Hajj season, “The Kingdom embraces the world,” alongside a verse from the Holy Qur’an that reads: “And proclaim that the people shall observe Hajj pilgrimage...” [Qur’an 22:27]

Jeddah Season provides seasonal employment for young Saudis

JEDDAH: The Jeddah Season festival has provided a wide range of seasonal employment opportunities for young Saudi men and women, helping them gain experience and prepare them to enter the job market.

More than 5,000 young Saudis are working around the clock, each in his or her field, to manage the festival’s activities.

The festival aims to highlight development opportunities in Saudi Arabia, introduce the Kingdom as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, support the government’s efforts to empower Saudi youths, support local small and medium enterprises, develop Jeddah’s tourism sector and provide volunteer opportunities.

Jeddah Season, which began on June 8 and runs until July 18, has attracted thousands of visitors of all ages through its 150 local and international events and activities.

It is being held at five sites: King Abdullah Sports City, Al-Hamra Corniche, the Jeddah Waterfront, Obhur and Historic Jeddah (Al-Balad), which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Jeddah Season offers a wide range of tourism, entertainment and cultural events and activities, and sheds light on the city’s status as the Kingdom’s tourism capital. Most of its events are being held for the first time in Saudi Arabia.

Jeddah Season is in line with the Vision 2030 reform plan, which aims to advance the welfare of Saudi society, diversify local development opportunities, improve the Kingdom’s contribution to arts and culture, and create job opportunities for Saudi youths.
