The Saudization of car rental sector will commence on March 18, 2018, announced Khaled Abu Al-Khail, spokesman of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development. The owners of car rentals are advised to complete Saudization before the deadline to avoid penalties. Once completed, the initiative is expected to generate some 200,000 part-time and full-time jobs for Saudis in the next three years.

As more employment opportunities are being created for Saudi citizens, the ministry is undertaking several measures to support and train them. There are facilities for electronic training of Saudi youth in targeted activities and technical and financial support is being provided for those interested in entrepreneurial work. The ministry is also holding several career forums to match employers and job seekers as well as to provide assistance in the field of inspection in cooperation with nationalization commissions.
