(MENAFN - Arab News) An official at the General Syndicate of Cars said that the union is considering a project to employ Burmese citizens in Makkah in the transport sector.

"There is a study under way now to employ Burmese who are residents here on condition that they are included in the Saudization process. The project is still under discussion and is facing many obstacles," said Marwan Zubeidi, Secretary General of General Syndicate of Cars.

He said that the Saudization committee in the syndicate found that Saudis refrain from working in this sector. "There are 25,000 jobs, but Saudis account for no more than 7 percent of applicants for these jobs. Saudi youths are reluctant to take on such jobs", he added.

A committee consisting of a number of parties, such as the Human Resource Fund, pilgrims transportation companies, the Ministry of Labor and others, is considering the possibility of training both Saudi and non-Saudi applicants as drivers so they can qualify for the job as a permanent position.

Sahal Sabban, undersecretary at the Ministry of Haj for Transportation, Projects and Holy Sites, said that dysfunctional buses reached 25 percent this last Haj season, emphasizing that transport companies did their part despite the growing numbers of pilgrims in the Haj season.
