Saudi Arabia’s government plans to invest around $27 B on an industrial development program during 2019 and 2020 to offer more investment opportunities, Aabed Al-Saadoun, Deputy Minister of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources said on January 28, Zawya reported citing Reuters.

The development program includes several fields, including mining and energy sectors inside the kingdom.
