I believe that this could harm the infrastructure temporarily, but with the right measurements, it will eventually increase the caliber and experience of the locals to a high level which will make them become more independent. it might take up to ten years.
As a Non Saudi Femail IT professional, I strongly believe that this will set the Saudi IT Infrastructure back many years. What I do see happening, that many of the support jobs will be off shored to Philippines, and India and the organizations will be able to increase their bottom lines by paying for a resource located half way around the world at a fraction of the price... All in all a bad over all decision... will be interesting to see how this plays out in the MENA region...
That should be interesting
Saudi Arabia, like the rest of the Arab Gulf states, have been preparing for this for some time now. They have developed the manpower, mostly woman-power, since most of their qualified IT personnel are females. I am confident they wil do the job just fine. I detest some people calling our brethren "camels". I presume this to be either a westerner, in which case one can refer to westerners as "horse-jockies" or "cowboys"; or he may be an indo-pak, and I don't wish to indulge in what one may refer to them. I urge all intelligent individuals from name-calling
Would that be possible?
Saudies will not cover the need of this field and they will need alot of engineries .....
if Saudi do this step they will stop developing for long time and will face alot of troubles
