JEDDAH: Technical and vocational training colleges would focus on the Kingdom’s job market requirements, said Labor Minister Mufrej Al-Haqabani, chairman of the board of directors of the Technical and Vocational Training Corp.

There are a number of partnership programs between the Labor Ministry, Education Ministry, TVTC and the private sector in order to adopt the best practices in training and education and support the ongoing efforts to develop the public education system,” the minister pointed out.
Al-Haqabani spoke about another initiative to develop manpower capabilities of every region to meet regional requirements. “This program will be carried out in coordination with the governorates,” he said.
In his statement, Al-Ghafees stressed his organization’s desire to strengthen its cooperation with the private sector. “TVTC is working continuously to develop its training programs to meet job market requirements.”

First pilgrims leave under Eyab initiative

  • Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries

Saudi Minister of Transport and Chairman of the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), Dr. Nabeel Al-Amoudi, oversaw the departure of the first 

group of pilgrims under the Eyab initiative on Saturday together with GACA President Abdulhadi bin Ahmed Al-Mansouri.

Eyab seeks to improve services provided to pilgrims, with the authority aiming to enrich pilgrims’ experience at the Kingdom’s airports. It is expected to benefit 30,000 pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season.

Al-Amoudi toured the exhibition dedicated to welcome Eyab’s beneficiaries, inspected the services available and received a briefing from the initiative’s officials.

GACA started an experimental implementation of Eyab this year, aimed at pilgrims returning to Indonesia, India and Malaysia through Jeddah’s King Abdul Aziz International Airport and Madinah’s Prince Mohammed bin Abdul Aziz Airport.
