Saudi loan finances delivery of housing units in Tunisia

  • The governor of Jendouba expressed the gratitude of the people of the province for the Saudi government’s support and its financing of this project

JEDDAH: The Tunisian city of Oued Melliz celebrated the delivery of 18 housing units built with the help of the Saudi Fund for Development on Friday. The units are part of a $150 million soft loan provided by the fund, which aims to build around 4,600 units in different regions of Tunisia for people on low incomes.
Mohammed Saleh Al-Arfaoui, Tunisian minister of equipment, housing and territorial development, expressed thanks and appreciation to the Saudi government under the leadership of King Salman for its constant support and for standing by Tunisia on several occasions.
He also said that this project, which will benefit the needy, reflects the great generosity that characterizes the Saudi government.
The governor of Jendouba, the northern governate where Oued Melliz is found, expressed the gratitude of the people of the province for the Saudi government’s support and its financing of this project. He noted that this gesture does not come as a surprise, for every time Tunisia asks something of the Kingdom, it receives more.
For his part, the Saudi Ambassador to Tunisia Mohammed bin Mahmoud Al-Ali congratulated the families benefiting from the project.
He also highlighted the Saudi Fund for Development’s commitment to complete all development projects it took on all over Tunisia, stressing that this occasion reflects the great improvement in Saudi-Tunisian relations in various fields.

First Saudi female air traffic controllers begin work

  • Eleven women completed a one-year program conducted by Saudi Air Navigation Services

JEDDAH: Saudi Air Navigation Services (SANS) on Wednesday celebrated the appointment and start of work of the first batch of Saudi female air traffic controllers at an air traffic control center in Jeddah.
Eleven women completed a one-year program conducted by SANS in cooperation with the Saudi Academy of Civil Aviation. This is the first program to qualify women to work as air traffic controllers.
The academy initiative, in collaboration with SANS, seeks to create more jobs for women as part of a reform push to wean the economy off oil. Vision 2030 plan aims to increase employment and diversify revenue sources.
Earlier, SANS CEO Ryyan Tarabzoni said the state-owned company was prioritizing the hiring of women in the profession, as the country pushes to extend women’s rights in the country and also recruit more nationals as part of the “Saudization” project.
