In the retail sector, big companies with existing rating of 35 % should hit 100%, and the smaller ones with 24% must have 35% rating according to the new policy.
60 industries in Saudi Arabia will be included among sectors that will be hit by the tighten rule.
Presently, there are many Saudi locals that are now working as cashiers and salespersons at the retail shops-- jobs that the locals shunned before. The Kingdom needs more people to work in construction sector but few Saudis are qualified and willing to do the job.
The approval of the stricter policy came from Saudi Labor Minister Ali bin Nasser Al-Ghafis and will be fully implemented starting September 3, 2017.
