The heir to the Saudi throne, Prince Muhammad bin Salman has announced a new ambitious plan: on the shore of the red sea planned to build city of the future. The project plans to invest 500 billion dollars.
The territory of the city, called NEOM, will be about 26.000 square kilometers. He is expected to be partially located on the territory of Jordan and Egypt. It will operate under separate management.
The infrastructure will be automated. Residents and visitors will find machines without drivers and the folks delivering the mail. Source of energy supply will be renewable energy.
32-year-old Prince has launched an extensive campaign to modernize Saudi Arabia and reduce our dependence on oil. It also seeks to modernize society: one of his last initiatives was the call for moderate Islam and the rejection of religious extremism.
