An engineering firm in Saudi Arabia is trying to empower the native youth in Information Technology for engineering and related services even as the Saudi government is driving out thousands of unskilled expatriates to find jobs for them.
Al Khobar based Salamah Consulting Engineering (SaCEn) has joined hands with Triassic Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (TSPL), an India-based company at the Technopark in the Kerala capital of Trivandrum, to leverage IT for the country’s industrial growth.
The two signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at the firm’s headquarters at Al-Khobar on Friday to use the global expertise of combining IT with engineering for promoting SaCEn’s advanced engineering services.
“With this MoU, SaCEn would like to reinstate its commitment in working closely with TSPL to empower Saudi youth in IT for engineering and related services and to successfully contribute to the country’s ambitious master plan of industrialisation, which is a core of the economic growth of the Kingdom for next six to seven years”, said Salamah S. Al Anizi, Director & CEO of SaCEn Saudi Arabia.
Salamah said this MoU comes in the framework of the government’s keenness to implement the Kingdom’s strategy towards full industrialisation combined with an information and knowledge society, and towards providing the opportunity and the potential to spread the innovation culture and encourage young creative Saudi youth.
He said the Saudi government was making efforts to activate the role of IT in various fields, so that the Kingdom’s society can cope up with the latest developments in IT enabled products and services as well as supporting the creation of job opportunities.
According to the Director and CTO of TSPL, Aneesh Suhail, said the tie-up, which will be valid for two years, will help SaCEn to learn about TSPL’s extensive experience in creativity, innovation and use of IT for the benefit of the companies operating in the industrial sector and for the society in Saudi Arabia.
Aneesh pointed out that the agreement is of great importance in view the fact that it will help the Kingdom to accelerate one of its important objectives which is helping young people find creative solutions to the community problems and building an economy based on innovative technologies.
