Companies delaying projects will be publicly blacklisted, Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, governor of Saudi Arabia's Makkah Province, has reportedly said. 

Furthermore, companies completing their projects within the appointed schedule will be "honoured". 

Prince Khaled was speaking at a meeting of the Makkah Regional Council, where he said local authorities have not been "strict" enough with negligent parties so far, adding this would now change. 

According to Arab News, he said: "The relevant authority will have to prepare a list of defaulters as well as those who meet the deadlines and other requirements." 

The governor directed the council to develop a mechanism to issue reports on the implementation of projects, with a detailed report at the end of every year containing a comprehensive disclosure on the implemented and delayed projects.

The names of the parties implementing and delaying the projects, be they individuals, government bodies, or private companies, should also be available for the public, he said.

"The governorate and regional council will issue the list under the categories of appreciation and warning," he continued.
