Saudi Arabia will build 14,000 km of railway across country, reported Reuters citing its investment minister Khalid Al Falih.
"New rail that will criss cross the kingdom and add to the network we already have," Falih told a key mining forum in Riyadh.
The first-ever Future Minerals Forum is being held at the King Abdulaziz International Conference Centre in Riyadh featuring over 2,000 decision-makers from more than 100 countries and 150-plus top global investors, as well as some 100 international speakers.
The three-day event, which saw experts highlight an extensive repertoire of subjects, opportunities and challenges confronting the world’s mining industry, concludes today (January 13).
Al Falih also said his ministry was working on a new investment law that is going to address the needs of both domestic and international investors.
