Saudi minister urges citizens to join private companies
Saudi Minister of Labor, Dr. Ghazi Bin Abdul-Rahman Al-Gosaibi said his Ministry's instructions banning recruitment of foreign manpower by small establishments employing less than ten workers, was prompted by royal directives to train Saudis and help them join establishments of the private sector.
In a press statement issued Sunday, Dr. Al-Gosaibi reiterated the "keenness" of the government on rationalization of the recruitment of foreign manpower, and opening wide-doors for the employment of citizens.
"A large number of Saudi cadres have been trained at the governmental and private training institutes. Moreover, these trained cadres are capable of performing their works in a satisfactory manner," he said. (menareport.com)
