U.S. mayoral delegation praises construction projects

May 17, 2009

Members of a U.S. mayoral delegation who spent last week on a visit to the Kingdom have expressed admiration for the extensive construction taking place inside the country, particularly in Jeddah. The group of 20 participants, including 10 mayors, spent several days visiting three different regions of Saudi Arabia.

During a visit by the delegation to Jeddah’s municipal headquarters, the mayors commended the city’s numerous construction projects. Such endeavors are aimed at diversifying the Kingdom’s economy, which will further deepen the economic cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the U.S.
