Saudi's Neom City all set to receive His Majesty

Neom City: Neom City in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is all set to welcome His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik on his first official visit since he became the Sultan of the country.

Neom City was planned to be one of the urban models of the future that ensures a balance for living with nature without cars and noise.

The project is located northwest of Saudi Arabia, and the city of NEOM, which means the ‘new future’, is the main project in “Saudi Vision 2030.” The city extends over an area of 26,500 km, with investments amounting to $500 billion.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia views the NEOM city project as the most important economic and investment project within the “Saudi Vision 2030” projects, which are directly supervised by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and aim to advance the Saudi economy, reduce dependence on oil revenues, and support economic diversification.

It is planned that the first phase of the city will be ready in 2025, and that work will be completed in a period of 30 to 50 years.

The visit is in response to the kind invitation that the His Majesty the Sultan received from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.

During the visit, discussions will cover all aspects of cooperation between the two countries with a view to upgrading bilateral relations, and realizing the aspirations of the two peoples, and achieving the objectives set in all fields. The discussions also aim at reaching results that serve common interests and establishing a more prosperous future for the two countries.
