American evangelical Christians visit Saudi Arabia's Neom future city
Delegation leader Joel C Rosenberg says Saudi Arabian Crown Prince is right to believe Neom will draw global tourists
Saudi Arabia’s $500bn (SAR1.9tn) futuristic super-city gigaproject, Neom, recently received a delegation of American evangelical Christians that were visiting Saudi Arabia, with Joel C Rosenberg heading the delegation that included a tour of the beach areas of Gayal and Magna; the valley of Taib Ism; and the 3,000-years-old historical site of Al-Bada’a.
Commenting during the visit, Rosenberg said: “Our group of leaders absolutely loved visiting Neom.
“We can see why HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, the Crown Prince, believes Neom will draw tourists from all over the world and why it is an important part of his Vision 2030 plan.
“We are very grateful we got to see it in its early development and are eager to come back and bring others when the time is right,” Rosenberg added, according to Saudi Arabia's state news agency, SPA.
Construction is steadily progressing on Neom, which is backed by the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman-led Public Investment Fund (PIF).
Al-Tamimi Group and Saudi Arabian Trading & Construction Co (Satco) were awarded a contract each to build and operate Neom’s ‘Construction Village’ for 30,000 workers earlier this month.
