We continue to forge strong relationships with national and international companies and welcome investors to join us in building the largest and most ambitious urban development project in the world.”

Commenting on the tour, NEOM Deputy CEO Rayan Fayez said: “Our visit to Riyadh marked the final leg of what was an extremely successful roadshow for NEOM. We had the opportunity to sit down with leaders from across the capital to discuss the investment opportunities that NEOM presents and explore the role of the project in driving economic growth in the country. As we work towards redefining livability, business and conservation, we acknowledge the role that key industry and government leaders play in making our vision a reality. NEOM has a pivotal role in the growth of the Kingdom’s industries and we welcome local investment to help drive this change.”
