Saudi Arabia takes disciplinary action against a senior official

The Saudi authorities issued a directive, today, Tuesday, to dismiss the director of the media department in the Royal Commission for the City of Riyadh, after publishing an “incorrect” news regarding the launch of the Riyadh 2030 strategy.
The Saudi Agency stated that “the directive was issued to dismiss the director of the media department in the Royal Commission for Riyadh City, and to investigate all those involved in what was published about the decision of the Board of Directors of the Commission to launch the Riyadh City 2030 strategy in false news and not related to the truth.”

The agency also added that “what has already happened is that the board of directors of the authority issued a decision to delay the launch of the strategy for the year 2022 due to the large size of its size and the incompleteness of important elements in it,” pointing out that “the board decided to work on ending it during the next year 2022, and then approved by the The Council, announcing it at the time, and starting to launch it according to the accompanying timetables.
Also, Saudi media had reported earlier today that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had postponed the launch of a major development strategy for the city of Riyadh by 2030 “because of its huge size and the incompleteness of important elements in it.”
She stated that the Board of Directors of the Royal Commission for the City of Riyadh decided “to work on completing it (the strategy) during the next year 2022, and then to be approved by the Council, and announcing it at the time, and starting to launch it according to the accompanying timetables.”
The head of the authority told Reuters last January that the Saudi government would invest $220 billion to transform Riyadh into a global city by 2030, expecting to attract investment of the same size from the private sector.
The kingdom plans to double the population and economy of its capital over the next ten years. Riyadh is currently inhabited by about seven million people.
The kingdom, the world’s largest oil exporter, is trying to diversify its economy away from oil revenues by establishing new projects and providing investment opportunities.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman wants Riyadh to become one of the ten largest cities in the world under his economic reform strategy
