Riyadh: A world-class conference centre will host the 29th Arab Summit, which will convene on Sunday (April 15) in Dhahran, Eastern province, in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saudi will preside over the pan-Arab summit, which convenes as the Arab region goes through a highly critical phase of its history.

The giant Saudi Aramco company constructed the landmark milestone, at the site of the first ever oil well, and named it after the founder King Abdulaziz Al-Saud.
The centre includes a modern library, an innovation centre, a children’s oasis which represents the first children-only museum in the Arab world.
The facility features also a natural history museum, art galleries and an archive centre.
Meanwhile, Eastern province governor Prince Saud bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz issued an order granting school and university students a day-off on Sunday marking the 29thArab Summit in Dhahran City.
