Saudi Arabia 2019 - Transport

The government’s vision is for both domestic and international transport to play a key role in the diversification and modernisation of the economy. The authorities are aiming at making the country a regional and international logistics centre. To achieve this goal, they envisage working closely with leading global logistics companies via public-private partnerships. One aspect of the new approach is the increased promotion of special economic zones in different parts of the country, creating industrial clusters with multi-modal freight links to a range of international destinations. As a result levels of both domestic and foreign investment are rising, particularly with regard to major infrastructure projects. This chapter contains interviews with Nabeel Al Amoudi, Minister of Transport; Rumaih Al Rumaih, President, Public Transport Authority; and Abdullah Aldubaikhi, CEO, Bahri.
