about saudi arabia.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia constitutes the bulk of the Arabian Peninsula, and is geographically the fifth-largest state in Asia, and the second-largest in the Arab world. Saudi Arabia is bordered by Joran and Iraq to the north, Kuwait to the northeast, Qatar, Bahrain, and the UAE to the east, Yemen to the south, and Oman to the southeast.

Saudi Arabia is sometimes called the ‘Land of the Two Holy Mosques’, in relation to the two holiest places in Islam. The country has a population of close to 29 million, of which 20 million are Saudi Nationals, and 9 million are expatriate workers. As the world’s largest oil producer and exporter, Saudi Arabia controls the second largest oil reserves and the sixth largest gas reserves. The Kingdom is classified as a high-income economy by the World Bank, with a high Human Development Index.

economy.

Saudi Arabia’s industry sectors are dominated by petrochemicals and petrochemical based products, such as crude oil production, petroleum refining, ammonia production, industrial gases, sodium hydroxide, and fertilisers. Roughly 90% of Saudi Arabia’s export earnings come from the oil industry, which comprises about 45% of the country’s nominal gross domestic product.

Secondary industries include construction and the manufacture of cement, plastics, and metals, agriculture, seawater desalination, water distribution, sewerage, and wastewater treatment, plus commercial ship and aircraft repair. The country now boasts the largest manufacturing hub within the Middle East, and will receive further Government investment as part of the ‘Saudi Vision 2030’.

recent reforms.

Saudi Vision 2030 is the Saudi Government’s plan to reduce the country’s dependence on oil, and to diversify its economy. Goals include developing public service sectors such as healthcare, education, infrastructure, recreation, and tourism, reinforcing economic and investment activities, increasing foreign trade through goods and consumer products, and increasing government spending on the military.

The plans were announced in April 2016 by Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, and include 80 projects, each valued between $3.7 million and $20 million.

workforce.

Expatriate workers began migrating to Saudi Arabia soon after oil was discovered in the late 1930s. Throughout the latter half of the twentieth century, the country became increasingly dependent on foreign labour, with expatriate workers occupying technical, professional, administrative, and service roles in a variety of sectors.

More recently, the number of women employed in Saudi Arabia has increased by almost 50%, according to the country’s Central Department of Statistics and Information. Due to the gender reforms introduced by the late King Abdullah Abdulaziz, Saudi women are now permitted to work in a variety of sectors, including retail, hospitality, law, media, and the diplomatic services.

saudisation.

Saudisation, officially known as the Saudi nationalisation scheme, or Nitaqat system in Arabic, is a policy of the Ministry of Labour, whereby Saudi-based companies and enterprises are required to fill up their workforce with Saudi Nationals based on certain quotas. The nationalisation scheme aims to assist Saudi Nationals in finding employment, and provide opportunities for Saudi women and youth.

To carry out the scheme, the Ministry of Labour devised 41 classifications for the employment sector, and 5 for Saudi-based businesses, in accordance with the number of workers they employ. There is a further level of categorisation in place called Nitaqat, which has divides organisations into one of four bands, depending on their level of compliance or non-compliance with Saudisation requirements.
