Saudi Arabia is gearing up to make the region a top entertainment destination in the Middle East. They are now beginning to issue licenses for live entertainment shows in cafes and restaurants across the kingdom.        Ads     2019 is shaping up to be the entertainment year in Saudi Arabia.    General Entertainment Authority Chairman Turki Al-Sheikh said that the entertainment programs aim to transform Saudi Arabia into one of the top 10 international entertainment destinations. In this accord, the GEA has negotiated long-term contracts with more than 100 local and international partners. Restaurants and cafes will also be able to apply for entertainment licenses.   Traditional and culturally significant local events feature prominently in the plans. Although many of these events and attractions have not been seen in Saudi Arabia for many years, Al-Sheikh emphasized that they will be presented in accordance with respect to the local values. “Our traditions and culture will be respected,” he said. “Our religion is clear and we will adhere to our Islamic values,” he said.  He also pointed out that one time, this practice is common in the Kingdom. “This is us; we used to be like this 40 years ago, now we are returning to what we had,” he added.   One of the aims of the GEA is discovering and developing local talent and give it a chance to be international prominent. Among the first to benefit from this are Osama, the “animal whisperer,” and Al-Juaad group, who will travel to Germany to showcase their talents.  “One of the many visions we have is that our local talent performs not only in Saudi Arabia but also abroad,” added Al-Sheikh. “Entertainment is a sector we heavily rely on for vision 2030, in realizing our dreams. We won’t attain our goals unless we work together.” He said that in addition to the pleasure it provides, the entertainment industry is a vital part of the economy, adding: “It creates jobs and investment opportunities. There is an opportunity for everyone.” To help support small and medium-sized local companies benefit from this, Al-Sheikh and Minister of Commerce and Investment Majed Al-Qasabi have signed an agreement that will help with the issuing of licenses for entertainment purposes. Al-Sheikh said coffee shops and restaurants will be issued permits to host live musical performances and stand up comedy events. The licenses would allow live music shows and stand-up comedies in cafes and restaurants across the Kingdom. Al Al-Sheik also stressed the importance of the entertainment sector in the Kingdom. He stated that the absolute priority is to provide job opportunities for Saudis in all areas covered by the entertainment sector, most importantly supporting Saudi talent. However, the report did not mention that the kingdom will be open to hiring performers and entertainers from other countries.

According to the OFW, this isn’t the first time her employer tried to sexually molest her.  According to the report, they tried to contact Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III to inform him about the incident but there is no reply from him yet.

Be careful in doing transactions with recruitment agencies if you are applying for jobs abroad. Make sure that you are dealing only with legitimate recruitment agencies with a valid license from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration to prevent yourself from being a victim of bogus recruitment agencies which will put you into serious trouble.       Ads  An OFW jumped off the building of the agency which allegedly scammed her.  The OFW was rescued and currently recovering. She went to Dubai December last year to work as a household service worker. Upon arrival, someone fetches her at the airport and brought her at the agency. they promised her that an employer will be coming but after a week of waiting, no employer had come. According to the OFW, in a week, there was no food and they were detained at the agency. During that period, they were also not allowed to use mobile phones even just to let their family know how they are doing.  That's when the OFW jumped off from the third storey of the building where they were staying.

Labor Attache Felicitas Bay of POLO Dubai reminds everyone that we should make sure that the agency which promises job abroad is duly accredited and licensed by the POEA before immersing ourselves in doing business with them.
