Pact with India to streamline hiring



The proposed labor cooperation agreement that is set to be signed in the coming weeks during the impending visit of Minister of Labor Adel Fakeih’s visit to India aims to help streamline the recruitment process and protect Indian workers from middlemen, according to Sibi George, the Indian charge d’affaires.

Saudi Arabia is a growing labor market given the major infrastructure and development program currently being undertaken across the country.

Major infrastructure projects such as the Riyadh Metro will require the services of a large number of high-end and skilled workers from India and the Subcontinent.

The emphasis being placed by Saudi Arabia on education, health, housing, infrastructure and transportation sector projects is set to create many job opportunities for skilled labor from countries such as India. More info
