    The plan to build this multi-million dollar new city is still on track.

    In 2016 KAEC signed contracts with developers and service providers covering the full range of the city’s operations.
    “KAEC is continuing to grow and our development plan remains firmly on track,” said Fahd Al-Rasheed, group CEO and managing director of KAEC. “Our status as a privately-funded development has been an important factor in our performance and our strong cash position has allowed us to continue to invest steadily across our activities toward achieving KAEC sustainable development”.
