Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has announced the establishment of three strategic offices that will develop the Kingdom’s Al Baha, Al Jouf and Jazan regions. The offices will make use of the regions’ economic advantages while also ensuring the creation of a strong investment climate that attracts private sector participation on a variety of fronts.
The initiative was described by state media as a continuation of Prince Mohammed’s objective of achieving sustainable development across the Kingdom: “This will create job opportunities for the citizens of the different regions while elevating the quality of life, enhancing basic services and improving the infrastructure for the citizens of those regions.”
