Consumer Health in Saudi Arabia

Description

Expats, who constitute one third of the total population, are declining in number within Saudi Arabia, resulting from the Saudisation programme and expat fees, which is adversely affecting consumer health sales. Many expat workers are being discharged by their employers or facing difficulties maintaining their current jobs and the burden of expat fees is forcing many men to send their wives, children and other dependants back to their home country to cut the high cost of living in Saudi Arabia.
