Cambridge skills boost for Saudi Post employees

The Saudi Post has adopted the Cambridge IT certificate skills as formal qualification for employees of the institution.
The move brings the Saudi Post in line with other institutions, such as the Ministry of Civil Service and the General Organization for Technical and Vocational Training, that already require the certificate.
Saad bin Abdullah Al-Turki, vice-president for Planning and Development, issued guidelines that require the adoption of the certificate for employees of all sectors of the organization as a training course equivalent to six months for employees of the Saudi Post. The measure seeks to upgrade technical capability of employees and quality of service, besides capacity building of the enterprise. To this end, it will make optimum use of technology in operations and management within the framework of the government policy to speed up the implementation of e-government services in various sectors.

SP will also bear the cost of the training program to encourage employees to develop their skills in computer operations and its various applications so that they become eligible for this major international certificate.
Jamal bin Hassan Alhefzi, general manager of CIT Saudi Arabia, will be responsible for the management certificate program in developing IT skills at the Cambridge International.

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman received a phone call from Iraqi President Barham Salih, Saudi Press Agency reported on Tuesday.
During the call, they reviewed relations between the two countries, in addition to discussing ways of enhancing bilateral cooperation in a way that serves the interests of the two countries in various fields, within the framework of the Saudi-Iraqi Coordination Council.
Saudi Arabia and Iraq opened the Arar border crossing for trade for the first time in three decades in November last year. The crossing had been closed since 1990 after the two countries cut ties following Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait.
Also in November, a Saudi delegation led by the Kingdom’s commerce and industry and agricultural ministers visited Baghdad as part of the framework of the Saudi-Iraqi Coordination Council and the Economic, Trade, Investment, Development and Joint Relief Committee.
A Saudi-Iraqi businessmen forum was also launched on the side-lines of the visit, under the auspices of the Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi. 
The Saudi-Iraqi rapprochement extends back to 2015, when Saudi Arabia reopened its embassy in Baghdad following a 25-year break.
In July Saudi Arabia and Iraq signed investment agreements on energy and sports.
