The Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources – Bandar bin Ibrahim Al-Khorayef said: “The ministry is keen to stimulate industrial facilities to invest in the Saudi human element by employing and training young men and women, and creating an appropriate environment for women’s work.” He emphasized that training in the workplace is the best as the trainee adapts to the environment in which he will work. This came during his visit to a number of industrial companies in the King Abdullah Economic City in Rabigh, during which he was briefed on the progress of the operational works and production lines, and met with officials and workers therein. His tour included King Abdullah Port, which started trial operation in 2013, with a capacity of 6.5 standard containers and 6 million tons General goods, and its geographical location, as the port is located on the coast of the Red Sea, which is the most important global maritime trade route between East and West, in addition to its proximity to the Industrial Valley, which is the center of industries in King Abdullah Economic City. It also inspects a number of companies and factories, such as the Saudi Arabian Mars Company. The Minister visited the logistical center of Bin Zaqer Company in the Industrial Valley in King Abdullah Economic City, noting that the center was equipped according to the latest international standards, including a mechanism to facilitate storage, distribution, transportation and added services. He also went on a visit to the Prince Mohammed bin Salman College of Management and Entrepreneurship.
