The first issue of 2017 looks into Saudi Arabia’s strong record on counter-terrorism, the Kingdom’s provision of humanitarian aid and relief to Syrians in need and foreign policy priorities, as well as giving an update on the progress made in the Vision 2030 economic roadmap for the Kingdom. The issue examines how the Riyadh metro project is set to reshape the Saudi capital, and profiles the women making their mark in a new role in the Kingdom’s airports.
Dr Abdullah Al Rabeeah, Supervisor General of The King Salman Humanitarian Aid & Relief Centre (KSRelief) presented the details of the Kingdom’s aid program in Brussels. Following meetings with EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid Christos Stylianides, Dr Al Rabeeah also took the time to explain the valuable work conducted by KSRelief as part of Saudi Arabia’s role as one of the world’s leading humanitarian donors.
