Vision 2030: How Saudi Arabia is Moving on Track

Published

on

The Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTH), was represented by the National Center for Human Resources Development (Takamul), in the third employment forum in Taif, that was organized by the Technical and Vocational Training Corporation.

During which, representatives from Takamul presented to the audience training and employment panels, for the youth who are seeking job opportunities in the field of tourism.

The director of SCTH, Mohamed Al-Boqmi, said that ,“Our objective is to raise the number of Saudi nationals in tourism, and to raise local public awareness about the prospects of tourist activities, which are considered one of the most important sectors of employment for young Saudis.”

Takamul is currently cooperating with the Ministry of Labor and Social Development; in an attempt to encourage and push Saudi youth to apply for jobs in tourism. Just recently, three Saudi women were given the license to become tour guides after completing a special training, and the aim is to increase the number of applicants.

According to a report done by Takamul, since the launch of the training programs, around 474 female students had benefited from the “Your Job … Your Scholarship” program, and 9,631 individuals have taken part in training provided as part of the National Transformation Program 2020. Also, 205 female tour guides have taken part in the workshops that are provided by Takamul.

These efforts of Saudi Arabia come as part of the 2030 Vision to boost the tourism sector, in order to diversify the economy of Saudi Arabia to not be exclusive to a certain avenue.

Besides the focus on tourism, the Kingdom is also investing billions of dollars in the sports and entertainment sector, attempting to reform this field. The Vision 2030 program was first introduced by Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and it’s fair to say that it has been so far going on the right direction.

Turki Al-Sheikh, chairman of the General Entertainment Authority, said that this year’s infrastructure investments would reach SR240 billion ($64 billion) in the next decade; thus contributing SR18 billion to the Saudi economy and generating 224,000 new job opportunities by 2030.

In doing so, the country hopes to increase soon the number of foreigners, and create a number of job opportunities for the Saudi youth that will further develop domestic tourism.

The King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) has received the American Concrete Institute (ACI) award for concrete construction excellence.

The building, which is designed by Zahra Hadid Architects (ZHA), is one of the most well-known landmarks in Riyadh. It’s known for its unique architectural design.

The structure features an hexagonal honeycomb structure which stands out with hexagonal cell openings providing shade from the harsh sun. “ZHA projects have always been unique and creative in an unprecedented, nontraditional way. There’s no other structure like it in the entire world,” Saudi architect Mokhtar Al Shoaibi told Arab News.

The building is made of extremely complex steel, said Saudi architect Mukhtar Al-Shoaibi.

“The contractor working on the job must have gone through so much to install the joints and then apply the sheets over it and now it acts as a monument in the Kingdom,” he told Arab News.

It’s also worth mentioning that KAPSARC won the title of ‘smartest building’ in Saudi Arabia from the Honeywell Smart Building Awards program.

“I’m proud to see Saudis accomplish that. There are many more major projects coming up in the Kingdom as well, and I can’t wait to see what they’ll present,” Mukhtar Al-Shoaibi said.
