The Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MLSD) conducted 3,365 rounds on commercial centers and stores across the Kingdom to make sure employers comply with the decision aiming to nationalize the telecommunication sector.

Khaled Abalkhail, spokesman at MLSD, said the inspection rounds which started from Dec. 31, 2016 to Jan. 13, 2018 uncovered compliance of 3,188 establishments compared to 177 uncompliant ones.

During the crackdown, the inspection campaigns detected 179 violations, including 156 nationalization violations and 23 labor violations, pointed out Abalkhail.

In this respect, Abalkhail urged customers to report violations or submit inquires on the nationalization decision by contacting the unified customer service no. (19911) or using the ‘Ma3an Lil Rasd’ app on smart phones.


Meanwhile, the total nationalization of the telecom industry along with its sales, maintenance and accessories aims to generate job opportunities for Saudi males and females who are interested to join the mobile industry in the light of the sector’s ability to provide lucrative income and job stability for them.

Additionally, the nationalization of the telecom sector seeks to limit security, social and economic issues and curb cover-up businesses. It also gives no exception for any establishment either it is mega, large, medium or small-sized.
