Saudi Arabia - المدينة الصناعية الثانية بالأحساء
Al-Ahsa Second Industrial City is considered one of the biggest potential industrial estates in Saudi Arabia. Amounting to 300 million square metres. It is situated around 50 kilometres from the Qatar border town of Salwa. As well as in close proximity to Bahrain and Dammam City. It so far has struggled to attract significant investment partly due to poor location and competition from other industrial cities. This includes the First Industrial City in the area.
The new city would be built around energy-related industries such as support services for power generation and transmission. It is in line with the Vision 2030 of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
