HH Prince Saud Bin Abdullah Bin Thunayan Al Saud, President of Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu (RCJY) inspected on Tuesday morning the work flow development in Ras Al Khair Industrial City, where he was briefed on the projects being implemented by the commission there.
Prince Saud began his field tour from Jubail Industrial City, inspecting the workflow at the Jubail-Ras Al Khair highway, which can accommodate six lanes. The highway, which is being implemented in three phases, has a length of 86 kilometers. He also oversaw the settlement work of the entire project, which includes storm water drainage, pavers, lighting, concrete bridges and ferries.
Upon his arrival in Ras Al Khair, the Prince toured the services area, which includes a fire station, medical center, a mosque, entertainment and sports center, employees’ housing and other facilities.
The RC president along with his group then went to the industrial area where settlement cessation is being implemented over a wide area to cover the expected investment needs in the industrial city, in addition to infrastructure works being carried out.
After the tour, they visited the Royal Commission’s temporary headquarters in Ras Al Khair where the prince held a meeting with the teams managing the constructions in the industrial city. The RC president delivered a speech on work guidelines and urged everyone to work double time.
“We are racing against time in the mission of constructing this large promising city,” he said. Afterwards, he was presented with various plans and investment programs.
He then visited the industrial complex of Ma’aden company, where he was received by a number of the workers and officials who accompanied him on a tour of the production lines and projects being done by the company.
At the end of the tour, he expressed his delight on the progress of work, saying that it was fortunate that the visit coincided with the 8th anniversary of the Custodian of Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah taking over the reign of the Kingdom.
“We in the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu have enjoyed the privilege of the King’s direct guidance and follow-up, and the best evidence is that he visited the industrial city of Jubail nine times during the past 10 years, creating projects with investments amounting to more than four hundred billion riyals,” Prince Saud said.
The RC president also noted the integration between the Royal Commission and its partners —the governmental and private companies — operating in the RC-supervised cities.
Ras Al Khair will provide opportunities for investments in basic industries like phosphate, aluminium, iron and copper phosphate, among others.
