Welcome to the Saudi Arabia focus edition of Law Update.
One of the key markets in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) that continues to lead from the front is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). As the largest country in the Middle East and the 18th largest economy in the world, the progress KSA continues to make is underpinned by its Vision 2030 that envisions developing the country as an investment powerhouse and hub that ultimately connects Asia, Europe, and Africa. Given Saudi Arabia’s significance to the regional economy, our team of experts have prepared a range of pertinent articles that provide insights into new laws, regulations, and the legal landscape in the Kingdom.
This edition will provide you with an up-to-date guide on matters such as; the framework issued by the Saudi Central Bank on IT governance, the anti-corruption landscape under Vision 2030; we also provide practical tips for dispute avoidance. This is only a snapshot; there are many more articles within the KSA focus section for you to read, which we hope you will find valuable and enjoyable.Read the edition
Al Tamimi & Company has worked with many organisations through its pro-bono program and is very proud to announce its partnership with UNICEF which will support a vital program developed to build capacity of social workers in child protection institutions in the Gulf.
The project, titled Capacity development of Social Workers: focuses on increasing the capacity of social workers who work with children in challenging circumstances, based both in and out of social care institutions, in order to ensure the protection of these children in all aspects.
To achieve this, a training workshop organized by UNICEF and Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood took place in February in Abu Dhabi where lecturers from Zayed University, Jordan and Egypt presented a 3-day course to social workers to provide them with the tools and support necessary to assist children.
It is programs like this that make a real difference to the world we live in today, and we at Al Tamimi encourage all organisations to contribute and participate in similar projects that will ultimately improve the quality of life of children everywhere.
