In terms of women’s participation in and contribution to the labor market Saudi Arabia is the fastest growing nations among G20 countries, a recent study has shown.

As Saudi Arabia is scheduled to host the forthcoming G20 summit meetings next year, the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) shed focus on the necessity to enable women to get job opportunities, in line with the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.



Women comprise some 20 percent of the workforce while men form 63 percent. The future vision aims to increase women’s participation in and contribution to the labor market to 30 percent.
