In a bid to Saudize 75 percent of top managerial positions in the private sector companies, it would require the private sector to draw up plans to train young Saudi men and women and groom them within a specified period to ensure a smooth and systematic replacement at the top level, members of the Shoura Council said.

The General Commission in the Shoura Council will refer the report on the matter to the Social Affairs, Family and Youth Committee for discussions at an upcoming Shoura Council session, The Saudi Gazette reported.
