The localization rate in the Saudi financial market institutions reached 77% in the fourth quarter of 2022, the Capital Market Authority (CMA) announced. CMA has also added that the localization rate in the market infrastructure institutions increased to 91%.

It is noteworthy that the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD) has announced that it is expanding the Saudization drive to new professions and activities.
