New plan to boost Saudization

The projects will entail developing recruitment mechanisms so the sectors depend entirely on the local market. (SPA)

RIYADH: The Ministry of Labor and Social Development is in the process of coming up with six vital projects aimed at increasing the Saudization of the labor market by giving more job opportunities to Saudis in different work fields, a source said.
The projects will entail developing recruitment mechanisms so the sectors depend entirely on the local market, applying professional tests to support technological and technical specialties, reducing the cost difference between employing Saudis and foreigners, resorting to the guided Saudization of jobs, developing employment mechanisms and channels, and finally implementing a balanced Nitaqat.
The projects will be announced soon, said the source.
The most important objective of these projects is to reduce the difference in cost when it comes to hiring Saudis, as opposed to foreign labor.
Pertinent bodies will review all the cost involved and recruit only skilled foreign labor in various business sectors.
