Previously, the Minister of Labor and Social Development issued a ministerial decision aiming to replace expat workers with Saudi workers in the sales business of 12 economic activities in the retail sector in order to empower the Saudi youth in the labor market. The ministerial decision comes part of the nationalization decisions previously issued by the ministry in cooperation with government and private entities. Also, the ministry and its affiliated entities have conducted workshops with the private sector to provide a work environment that is appropriate and motivating for the Saudi workforce and to expand the public-private partnership. It is in harmony with the nationalization strategy of the ministry to develop human resources and enhance Saudis’ participation in the economy.
