Al-Qahtani, said that, “Through partnerships with tenants who are key players in their industry, we elevate the strength of our world-class integrated ecosystem while facilitating our investor’s ambitions. Ultimately, through the localization of manufacturing, we contribute towards a more sustainable future for the Kingdom and beyond.”
