Saudi Arabia will soon have its own media production city, Minister of Culture and Information Adel Al-Turaifi told local media.

Speaking at a press conference, the minister said the city would include a special platform to produce artworks that will highlight the Kingdom's history, heritage, folklore and tolerance.

He said an Islamic art museum will also be opened to depict the art history of the Kingdom.

Turaifi revealed that the ministry would soon launch a number of technological projects and would promote its publications using the state-of-the-art technology. He welcomed constructive criticism even for himself and said nobody, even ministers, is above criticism.

Turaifi described the Kingdom's Vision 2030 reform initiative as a creative strategic plan, which should be implemented to the dot, reported Saudi Gazette.

He said the elections for the membership of literary clubs will soon be organised and asked the clubs to work hard to preserve the Kingdom's literary heritage.
