"Since the announcement of the directives of the Sultan, government and private agencies have worked to implement these directives, as these operational initiatives for job seekers, workers whose services have been terminated and those affected by the repercussions of the pandemic will work to empower them, improve their standard of living, provide skills and practical experience and enhance their talents," Al Bathari added.
