Tadawul appointment boost

The Saudi Arabian government's decision to appoint a nine member board of directors for Tadawul, the joint stock firm which handles issues such as stock transactions and the registration of ownership, was a major factor behind the Tadawul All Share Index's 1.4% gain yesterday, reported Arab News. The bourse had declined for three straight days but the appointment of the directors for three year terms gave the market fresh impetus.
