Background on NEOM
(According to the official website of the NEOM project and international media reports)
A huge Saudi project on the Red Sea coast aims to establish industrial, tourism and investment zones based on modern technology and renewable energy. It extends over an area of 26.5 kilometers and includes lands in the states of Egypt and Jordan.
The investment of the project is $ 500 billion, and the first phase will end in 2025, and the project is expected to be completed within a period of 30 to 50 years.
The NEOM project is part of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s plan, known as the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, which aims to attract foreign investment and create jobs in an effort to reduce the kingdom’s dependence on oil.
The company expects that its contract with NEOM will contribute to achieving revenues and profits for the company, which appear in stages, starting from the last quarter of this year until the first quarter of 2021, according to the statement.
