Mas’ad explained that the department needs at least ten new employees with degrees in calculus, 50 employees with degrees in law in addition to a number of secretarial staff members.

In other news, the commerce ministry plans to refer employees who had been in service for 30 years to retirement by the end of December 2017, said informed sources, noting that the lists of those employees are currently being submitted to the minister for approval. The ministry has issued a directive in this regard and has given concerned employees the option of resigning instead of being referred to retirement in order to get more benefits.
