(MENAFN - Arab News) The Ministry of Labor will start allowing women to work in accessories and abaya stores within six month.

Fahd Al-Nikhaifi, assistant undersecretary in the Ministry of Labor and director of women's employment in private sector, said the plan excluded perfume and eyeglasses stores.

Al-Nikhaifi said the ministry's strategy is to follow up on the implementation of the resolution by appointing supervisors from Taqat employment center, which helps job seekers.

"The most important is founding nurseries, which is the biggest challenge to working women," said Al-Nikhaifi. "These nurseries also create job opportunities for women."

The ministry is permitting part-time jobs for women in these stores. Working hours will be limited to four hours daily.

"This proposal has been submitted to Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah for the final approval to decrease women's working hours," Al-Nikhaifi said.

He said the ministry's initiative to establish service centers in shopping centers will help create more vacancies for Saudi workers.
