“The forum had excellent results. We held the event in different places at the same time this year and we have plans to organize the same event on a yearly basis with the help of the Ministry of Labor, JCCI and HRDF (Human Resources Development Funds) to get the best results for our graduates and to provide them with good job opportunities in the private sector,” said Dr. Rashid bin Mohammed Al- Zahrani, President of TVTC Makkah.
Dr. Al- Zahrani said that the program to employ young Saudis demands a massive joint effort involving the Ministry of Labor, JCCI and Human Resources Development Funds (HRDF) and others.
Dr. Al-Zahrani also announced on Monday the signing of an agreement with Nesma and its subsidiaries to train 235 young Saudis over the next six months in welding, electricity installation, scaffolding, plumbing, carpentry, refrigeration, air conditioning, blacksmithing, sheet metal working, machinery operation and maintenance, tiling, plastering, and painting.
