Newsline: All embassy jobs to be Saudized

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs plans to Saudize all contract jobs at embassies abroad, including allocating a third of all positions for women. Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Khaled bin Saud said the plan would ensure 100 percent Saudization in Arab countries and 75 percent in missions in non-Arab countries. He said the ministry is “closer than ever to achieving these numbers,” and that it had previously not “employed non-Saudi citizens in official positions, be they diplomatic or administrative.” He said the ministry was working to ensure gender equality in the diplomatic corps. “The ministry does not distinguish between men and women in the Foreign Ministry. Women are given the same career options and are able to reach high positions like their male counterparts. In this regard, and as per the directives of the minister, we aim to allocate one third of all positions for women.”
