Described as “the world’s most ambitious project,” the city is expected to be 33 times bigger than New York and it is getting established from scratch!

Nadhmi Al-Nasr, CEO of the project, congratulated King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on the occasion of Saudi National day as he announced the start of implementation of the mega project.

“The work on NEOM Bay Airport is complete and the development of labor compounds that will contribute to the growth of the project is now launched, in addition to equipping the residential and administrative area for NEOM employees who will be moving there.”

“We are pleased to announce that NEOM has almost finalized the establishment of strategic plans for this project and its various economic sectors, and we are ready to begin their actual implementation.”  “We are willing to work day and night, so that the coming year, 2020, will be the beginning of the actual momentum of the NEOM projects, embodying the Saudi endeavor to build a promising future for the country.” Al-Nasr added.

We hope this aligns with the plan of completing phase 1 by 2020, with the final brick laid in 2025.
