Red Sea Mall supports productive families

Under the supervision of the Ministry of Labor in the Makkah region, Red Sea Mall recently handed over the keys to the kiosks that were set up as outlets inside the mall, to productive families. So far, the center’s retail outlets have been used by eight productive families within a month. 

The initiative, spearheaded by Red Sea Mall in collaboration with the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI), was launched under the slogan “Sinaati Biyadai” in February 2016 to emphasize the importance of handmade labor and promote its development. Over 200 families have benefited from the initiative over the past two years.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Development in Jeddah has been awarding many families enrolled in social security the opportunity to sell their handmade products at Red Sea Mall. The scheduled working days are three to four days for every two families per week, during which the products will be showcased.

Aidrous Al-Bar, executive member of Red Sea Markets Limited Company, owning company of Red Sea Mall, said: “The success of the initiative over the past two years has played a significant role in attracting more families over the years. This year we have collaborated with the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, which is overseeing the process of communicating with families registered for social security. We are very pleased with this pioneering step, especially because the project will hugely benefit those who are in need of such opportunities, specifically the families enrolled in social security.”

He added: “Red Sea Mall welcomes the productive families who are directed to us by the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, and we are helping them overcome obstacles so that the process of benefiting from the initiative will proceed as planned. 

“Our pioneering experience, together with cooperation with the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, and the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is aimed at guaranteeing the entry of productive families into the labor market among the small and medium enterprises. The initiative has played a major role in the entry of many families into the labor market during 2016-2017. We are very optimistic about it and will continue to work and contribute toward the achievement of the National Transformation Program 2020, and we will spare no effort to do so.”

This initiative is also one of the activities supporting the retail sector, which has entered a new stage since the launch of Saudi Vision 2030, providing investment opportunities in many sectors, especially those specializing in entertainment.

PISJ-ES Plays an integral role in strengthening the Pak-Saudi socio-cultural synergy

The first dawn of Libra marks the anniversary of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which establishes a deepest connotation, being one of the most gracious and enriching countries around the globe.

On the occasion of Saudi National Day, I extend my heartfelt felicitations to the custodian of the two Holy Mosques, His Excellency King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, the Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman and people of the entire Kingdom.

With its unique eccentricity, Saudi Arabia emits such a compelling oomph that binds all who connect with it whether being an expat living miles away from their homeland or a visitor from any country, ethnicity or culture.

With the rich background, initiating from the beginning of the world itself, and induced by the timeless teachings of our last Prophet, Muhammad, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia establishes a great relation among all Muslims from around the world to reckon this land of peace and brotherhood as the spiritual hub of Islam.

Besides, its air of peace and harmony blows stirring religious inspiration for Muslims that connect them with their roots.

Millions of Muslims internationally are uniquely attracted to visit the blessed mosques of Makkah and Madinah as pilgrims to satiate their religious obligations.

Today is the day for all Saudis and those who dwell in this pure land to celebrate their individuality, peace and sovereignty as a nation.

However, alongside the celebrations, we must focus our sincere endeavors towards the development of this country in our exclusive capacities with hard work, dedication and respect for the law to preserve the country’s capabilities and achievements and take those to the new heights of glory and achievement.

Pakistan International School Jeddah - English section has been playing an integral role in strengthening our indestructible ties of the Pak-Saudi relationship.

Our students feel pride in studying its culture and language which reinforce their profound intimacy with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Both the countries maintain exemplary bilateral military, economic, security and cultural relations.

This cultural synergy is supporting to elevate the overall socio-economical structure in terms of trade, values, health and education in both the countries.

The Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s overwhelmingly heartfelt statement during his recent visit to Pakistan – “I am the ambassador of Pakistan in Saudi Arabia,” not only endorses our fondness towards each other but also reflects our combined desire to take the history of our strategic relationships to a new level.

Sharing the joy of celebrating the Saudi National day with great pride and enthusiasm, I pray for the eternal peace in both the countries and their everlasting friendship.

Long live Saudi Arabia and Pak-Saudi friendship!
