Dr. Majed bin Abdullah Al-Gasabi, acting Minister of Media, and member of the board of directors of NEOM company, described The Line project, recently launched by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, the Crown Prince, who is the President of NEOM board of directors, as a world-class model of future cities and a hub for world dreamers who would like to see and enjoy a new ideal pattern of life.
Dr. Al-Gasabi cast light on the strategic location of NEOM overlooking the Red Sea coast, considered the world’s economic artery linking the three continents of Africa, Asia and Europe.
In a telephone interview with Al-Ikhbaria TV today, the Saudi acting media minister said that at least 70 percent of the world population could reach or have direct access to NEOM in less than eight hours, poising the Saudi Red Sea site to serve as an international platform for innovation, creativity, knowledge, technology research and civilizations.
