In a Sunday statement, the chamber declared that the strike will negatively affect raw material imports and industrial exports.

The statement argued that truckers have made their point by stopping work for several days, but continuing to strike will harm the Kingdom’s economic interests and citizens alike.

The chamber emphasized the importance of dialogue, and called for the responsible authorities to draw up a roadmap for developing the transport sector that helps reduce costs for workers, especially fuel costs.
