RIYADH: The majority of Diriyah Gate Project staff, 83 percent, are Saudi nationals, out of which 36 percent are women, said Jerry Inzerillo, group CEO of the Diriyah Gate Development Authority.
Inzerillo, who was speaking at the Future Hospitality Summit, said that 16 percent of the project's women workforce are operating in the management sector.
“Just build a giga-project and leave your community behind it. It would be immoral,” said Inzerillo.
He added that 40 percent of the workforce in the Diriyah Gate Project are from the local community.
According to Inzerillo, the project will be an iconic initiative which will offer a future grounded in Saudi Arabia’s glorious past.
Inzerillo revealed that the project, upon completion, will have 20,000 residential units, and the contracts to build these settings are being awarded to Saudi builders.
