JEDDAH: The Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry, represented by the human resources committee, has launched a program to train 1,000 young Saudis in collecting Zakat and taxes, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
In collaboration with the Department of Zakat and Income Tax, the chamber’s administrative board launched the initiative with aims that it would attract Saudi talents from both genders, and increase the Saudization of this sector.
The launching was attended by Eng. Mansour Al-Shathri, Vice Chairman of Riyadh Chamber, Mohammad Al-Harbi, general manager of the human capital department at the General Authority of Zakat and Tax (GAZT), and secretary-general of Riyadh Chamber, Eng. Ahmed Bin Suleiman.
In the opening speech, Al-Shathri said the program held at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center is part of the chamber’s initiatives to expand Saudization of the labor market.
This will be achieved by empowering young saudi men and women to take over available job vacancies, he said.
The program comes within the framework of the Chamber’s initiative in many sectors to implement the Kingdom’s plans to empower young Saudis, in accordance with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
