“The complete nationalization of government jobs is an important objective of the National Transformation Program 2020 and the Kingdom’s Vision 2030” said Deputy Minister Abdullah Al Melfi. In line with this, the Ministry of Civil Service has asked all ministries and government departments to get rid of all expatriate workers within three years.

The ministry said that there were 70,000 expats in the public sector at the end of last year and added that there will be no expats in the government by 2020. These plans were divulged in a meeting which focused on the Saudization plan followed by a workshop called “Job nationalization”.
