Saudi Arabia extended several government initiatives to support the private sector in mitigating the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, state news agency SPA reported on Thursday.


The agency cited a decision by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.


The Kingdom had introduced in March measures such as exemptions and postponements of some government fees and taxes for a period of three months.


It is now looking to extend some support measures for an unspecified period of time, according to SPA.
