Transport and logistics system has an initiative to Saudize 23,000 jobs in 28 different professions, Assistant Minister of Transport and Logistics Ahmed Al-Hassan said.
“These include 10,000 jobs in the heavy transport sector, 3,000 in the passenger transport sector, and 10,000 jobs in the air navigation sector,” the minister said, while addressing the main session of the third Qassim Youth Empowerment Forum “My Opportunity 3.” The forum is titled, “The authorities’ efforts to empower youth according to the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030,” which was held under the patronage of Prince Faisal bin Mishaal, Emir of the Qassim region.
Al-Hassan said the transport and logistics system receives support and care from the wise leadership to achieve the goals of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy and the Saudi Vision 2030.
Saudi Logistics Academy was set up support an emerging logistics sector, and it is one of the goals of the National Transport and Logistics Strategy launched by Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed bin Salman to put Saudi Arabia on the world map as a global logistics center. About 450 male and female Saudis have graduated from the academy to join the logistics sector, Al-Hassan said.
