Saudi to gradually raise fees to employ foreign workers: finance minister

RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia will gradually increase the monthly fees paid by companies in the kingdom to employ foreign workers, starting from 2018, Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan told a press conference on Thursday.

The level of fees will depend on the proportion of foreigners in each company’s workforce, the minister added.
