Jobless in Saudi Arabia stand at 448,000
Mifarih Al-Huqbani was speaking in a panel discussion in the framework of Arab labor ministerial meeting on youth employment and changes in Arab countries.
Al-Huqbani said job seekers were steadily increasing even with bigger rates than what is declared by the Central Department of Statistics and Information (CDSI).
The Saudi official suggested short- and long-term solutions for youth employment. For short-term, he stressed the importance of imparting education suiting labor market needs, creation of job opportunities, coordination between ministries, and upgrading of technical and other skills among the youth.
