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.

By

Saudi Arabia is still working towards achieving equality with focus on equalizing the legislation surrounding marriage contracts for women of the Kingdom.

According to several sources that were interviewed by the Kingdom’s daily newspaper Okaz, word has it that the Ministry of Justice is working towards amending new policies that will guarantee women’s right in marriage.

One of these amendments will include a new process that will have women reviewing and consenting contracts before finalizing. In an attempt to eliminate implications of coercion and to also consider the level of satisfaction afforded to brides-to-be, the new policies will grant women a greater sense of freedom.

Not only that, but the new policies will also ask women to explicitly state their contentment with their new prospective life partners, and and also grant them the chance to appoint a legal guardian throughout the process.

This is seen to be another great leap towards achieving the right women of Saudi Arabia deserve and ensure their involvement in the matters that affect their lives.

It also makes perfect sense to have them involved in what is considered to be the most important contract of their lives.
