‘We are very excited to be working with SIDF on what is one of the most important objectives of the Kingdom: human capacity building. ENGIE is the positive energy partner that will contribute to the Kingdom’s objectives through FDI, job creation, knowledge transfer, and, in this particular case, human capacity development’ said Turki Alshehri, CEO of ENGIE in Saudi Arabia.
ENGIE has been present in Saudi Arabia for decades and is established as one of the largest independent power and water producers in the Kingdom, and as a leader in energy services.
The signing of this MoU forms part of ENGIE’s desire to localize its business as much as possible, by hiring, developing and retaining local talents. To that end, ENGIE Middle East, South & Central Asia and Turkey (MESCAT) launched in 2017, the Leadership Development Program for Nationals, which already benefited to dozens of young professionals from GCC countries.
