Saudi authorities on Thursday said that jobs at shopping centres would be limited to its citizens, a move set to hurt migrant workers in the oil-rich country.


A spokesman for the Ministry of Labour and Social Development, Khaled al-Khail, said in a brief statement that only Saudis would be employed at the malls spread across the kingdom.

He did not say how many foreigners are at present working in this sector.

According to official figures released in 2016, foreigners made up around one third of Saudi Arabia’s population of 31 million.
