Highlighting the significant participation of the Higher Commission for Development of Riyadh (HCDR) at the event, Al-Muqbel said the HCDR is exhibiting the public transport project due to the fact that there is a close relationship between urban development and the public transport project s and their contribution to the overall development in the city in all areas.
Husain Al-Harthi, chairman of the National Exhibition Company, said the real estate market in the Kingdom is enjoying enormous prosperity not only in terms of the number of developers but also in the solid presence of major financial institutions.
