KSA bans expats in women’s tailor shops

Saudi labour ministry has said all women's tailor shops in the kingdom will be run by Saudi women, as recruitment of expatriate workers has been halted in this industry, Saudi Gazette has reported. Workshops will be held by the ministry in Riyadh and Jeddah in the next two weeks to discuss the plan with the owners of these shops, said assistant undersecretary for development at the ministry, Fahd Al-Tekhaifi. The ministry will also provide training to qualify Saudi women and prepare them to fill the jobs of men's tailors, he said.
