"The corporation was inspired to modify its vision after the Kingdom released its Vision of 2030. We have launched a program called Atqin, which focuses on enabling Saudis to learn skills needed by the job market. The program will include in its third phase training for women to work in the automobile industry. The trainers will be hired from the United States, Britain and Canada," said Al-Faheed.
