Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - RIYADH: Global artificial intelligence labor market is expected to create new jobs by 2030, said Saudi Human Resources and Social Development Minister Ahmed Al-Rajhi.

He highlighted Saudi Arabia’s role in supporting international efforts to keep pace with changes in the global labor market, emphasizing the Kingdom’s diverse workforce and its aim to be a preferred destination for top talents globally.
The minister affirmed Saudi Arabia’s commitment to creating private sector-led work environments to meet the needs of Saudis.
Al-Rajhi advocated for creating work conditions free from exploitation or technological disruptions leading to abrupt job losses, while ensuring that new technologies are used to maximize value for the global economy.
“Saudi Arabia is emerging not just as an international center of commerce but also as a leader in global sectors such as aviation, mining, tourism, and healthcare,” he said.
Al-Rajhi added: “We are blessed with a young and highly educated population, and we want to ensure that everyone who works in Saudi Arabia has access to everything they need to realize their ambitions, whatever their individual talents and abilities. To achieve this goal, we want to work with friends throughout the world.”
Additionally, he addressed the challenges from a supply chain perspective, emphasizing the necessity for greater adaptation to cope with increased geopolitical volatility, economic uncertainty, and rising inflation.
“The factors that we consider today are not only incredibly complex but also dynamic,” Al-Rajhi said.
