Saudi women don’t need male permission to start businesses

NADA HAMEED / ARAB NEWS

JEDDAH: Saudi women do not need the permission of a male guardian to start their own business, according to the Saudi Ministry of Commerce and Investment.

“No need for a guardian’s permission. Saudi women are free to start their own business freely,” ministry spokesperson Abdul Rahman Al-Hussein tweeted on Thursday using an Arabic hashtag that translates as #No_Need.

The #No_Need campaign is an initiative of Taysir, which aims to streamline the necessary procedures to establish a new business.

WOMEN DRIVER

There is no longer any need to visit a notary to document the founding of a company. The Abshir system means this can all be done electronically.

Saudi women will no longer face more obstacles than a man does to establish their own business and government agencies will no longer require the consent of a guardian for a woman to complete the necessary procedures.

Al-Hussein told Arab News: “Women can practice all their commercial transactions in the Ministry of Commerce and Investment without a guardian or a notary.”

Nojood Al-Qassim, head of the Department of Personal Status, Family Legacies and Women’s and Children’s Rights, pointed out that this latest step toward the empowerment of Saudi women is in line with the government’s overall development drive.

“One of the directives of Vision 2030 is to activate the role of Saudi women in society and to give them their full rights and the rights guaranteed by Shariah,” she told Arab News.

Dima Al-Shareef, a Saudi law consultant, said: “I believe this new approach will open the door to (women) in our homeland to highlight their talents and ideas and translate them into a realistic business with a worthy financial return.”

She added: “We are witnessing a new era in the empowerment of Saudi women, in the commercial sphere in particular.”
