Dubai, May 23 (IANS) A company in Saudi Arabia's eastern province has said it will hire 5,000 Indian workers affected by that country's new labour policy.

The Nasser S. Al-Hajri Corp (NSH) is holding a two-day recruiting drive in Riyadh Thursday and Friday, the Arab News reported Thursday.

"We plan to recruit 27 categories of workers, ranging from technicians to project managers," a company spokesman was quoted as saying.

He said it was a good opportunity for Indian workers to legalise their residency status and change their sponsors after the Saudi government implemented the Nitaqat or Saudisation policy, which makes it mandatory for all Saudi companies to reserve 10 percent of jobs for Saudis.

Headquartered in the city of Al-Khobar, the NSH has projects in Yanbu, Jazan, Jubail and Ras and contracts with that Gulf nation's oil company, Saudi Aramco.
