The seminar explored employment and training opportunities provided by RSG’s business partners, government agencies and non-profit organizations to communities surrounding the project.


Riyadh, (01 Feb 2021): Red Sea Global RSG (formerly known as TRSDC) , the developer behind the world’s most ambitious regenerative tourism project, hosted its first on-site seminar to explore employment and training opportunities for the communities living in close proximity to the development. The session also identified potential cooperations between RSG’s partners, non-profit organizations and government agencies with a successful history in training and employment within the area.

The seminar took place on 31 January at RSG’s Base Camp facility between the towns of Umluj and AlWajh on the west coast of Saudi Arabia. It was attended by RSG’s partners and leaders and representatives from the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development, Human Resources Development Fund (Hadaf), and the training organization Maximus Gulf.

We are only at the beginning of Saudi Arabia’s exciting transition to a new and diversified economy, a change that brings with it a wealth of opportunities for Saudis. At RSG we are committed to empowering the communities surrounding our project to ensure that they are among the first to benefit from the development, through job creation and training,
Said John Pagano, Group CEO of RSG.

RSG seeks to surpass existing environmental and socio-economic sustainability standards and the identification and delivery of key social development initiatives is central to achieving this goal. In addition to delivering various training programs, the project itself is expected to create about 70,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs by 2030.

“We are extremely proud to host our first gathering with government agencies, non-profit organizations and RSG’s partners to create a long-lasting positive impact on our local communities. We have worked tirelessly to provide high-quality community development and social responsibility programs - including providing employment, training, education and volunteering opportunities for the citizens of Umluj and AlWajh,”
said Eng. Ahmed Darwish, Chief Administrative Officer at RSG.

 

The Red Sea Project has already passed significant milestones and work is on track to welcome its first guests by the end of 2022, when the international airport and the first four hotels will open. The remaining 12 hotels planned in phase one will open in 2023.

Upon completion in 2030, The Red Sea Project will comprise 50 hotels, offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and around 1,300 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland sites. The destination will also include a luxury marina, entertainment, and leisure facilities.
