A delegation of ambassadors accredited to Saudi Arabia visited the 26,500km2 construction site of the futuristic Neom super city project – which is being developed by the kingdom’s Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman-led Public Investment Fund as part of the Vision 2030 mandate – to understand how companies and individuals can work at Neom.
According to a report by Saudi Arabia’s state news agency, SPA, the delegation was briefed on how Neom – a cross-border project planned to link Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan – would benefit qualified professionals and entities from around the world.
A separate Arabic-language report by SPA added that the delegation was informed about plans to use renewable energy for all operations at Neom.
The tour concluded with a visit by the delegation to the Neom Beach Soccer Cup tournament, which was held on 17-20 July on the Saudi Arabian coast.
