Riyadh, August 12, 2014
Work on the first women’s industrial city in Saudi Arabia, expected to accommodate women’s businesses exclusively, is well under way.
The city, which is expected to cost SR111 million ($29.59 million), will span an area of 500,000 sq m and is located east of Al-Ahsa International Airport, said a report in the Arab News.
The women’s industrial city will be divided into three sections: a commercial section, which will span 140,000 sq m, an industrial section to be built on an area of 170,000 sq m, and a services area, which will span 120,000 sq m, a statement said.
The new city aims to accommodate the largest number of industrial projects pioneered by women, it said.
