The Ministry of Civil Service has asked all ministries and government departments to remove all expatriate workers within 3 years, according to deputy minister Abdullah Al-Melfi. The ministry said that there were 70,000 expats in the public sector at the end of last year.
“There will be no expatriate workers in the government after 2020. The complete nationalisation of government jobs is an important objective of the National Transformation Program 2020 and the Kingdom’s Vision 2030,” Malfi said. [Source: saudigazette .com]
