Riyadh - SPA
Shura Council recommended restructuring of the railway system so that it belongs solely to
Ministry of Transportation. The Council criticized the tendency of big Saudi companies
to outsource their activities to contractors who recruit non-Saudi manpower resulting in
impeding of job localization endeavors. A member of the council has noticed that number
of expatriates has increased by 12% while unemployed Saudis increased by 3.3% as
compared to last year.
