Saudi Arabia Funds Development Projects in Saint Vincent, Grenadines


(MENAFN) The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has recently signed two development loan agreements, amounting to $16 million, with the goal of establishing a primary care center and a cultural facility in the Caribbean nation of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. These agreements are part of Saudi Arabia's broader framework to support the progress and development of developing countries and small island developing states worldwide.

Under the first agreement, USD6 million will be allocated for the construction of a primary care center in the town of South Rivers. The primary objective of this project, as reported by the Saudi Press Agency, is to enhance the quality and resilience of the healthcare sector in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. By establishing a comprehensive primary care center, the initiative aims to ensure that local communities have access to essential healthcare services, ultimately improving health outcomes and reducing chronic diseases and mortality rates in the region. Additionally, the project is expected to generate direct and indirect employment opportunities and contribute to the training and capacity building of medical personnel.

The second agreement, valued at USD10 million, will focus on the construction of a cultural center and a market for craft and agricultural products in Belle Vue. This initiative aims to promote and showcase the country's rich cultural heritage, craft, handicraft, and creative industries. By providing a dedicated space for cultural activities and creating a market platform for local artisans and agricultural producers, the project seeks to stimulate economic growth, preserve traditional craftsmanship, and foster cultural exchange within Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

These development loan agreements highlight Saudi Arabia's commitment to supporting the socio-economic progress of partner nations. By investing in key sectors such as healthcare and culture, the Kingdom aims to contribute to the sustainable development and well-being of communities in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. These projects will not only provide essential infrastructure but also create opportunities for economic growth, job creation, and skills development, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for the country's residents and promoting cultural diversity and appreciation.
