When a silly design gets approved, it's a metaphysical sh!t: rational-thinking people can't understand too many things in it.

Naki, all your pictures refer to a chinese website that cannot display them in Europe. Your every post with pictures only displays blanks.

Prince Alwaleed asked about the Jeddah Tower in Bloomberg video interview at (4:24)

Project is back on track with Binladen Group and financially been secured from the beginning, since they signed with a bank to finance the whole thing until it's end.

On track to complete 1 floor every 7-10 days.

vision saudi arabia 2030 will not be achieved if it does not fix the education system, when first I studied in Japan a professor said "the progress of a nation depends on the quality of education, the better the human resources then the nation has a good future". therefore instead of saudi arabia continue to compete to build the tallest building is better to invest in education, such as research and technology development, giving scholarships to outstanding students to pursue graduate studies at renowned universities in developed countries, adopted the country's education system forward, building many university engineering and medicine standards international, and tighten the selection to be a teacher and began teaching primary school level to the university in order to get qualified.

This is a private projects owned by Alwaleed. This is not a government project.
Saudi Arabia spent most of the budget to improve education, we have the highest rates of scholarships to developed countries. We also have well organized constitution like KAUST in engineering and KFHRC in medicine. I m not saying we are the best but at least there is much improvement in the last few years and we will keep going.

+1 to this

Westerns and some Saudi Arabians seem to forget that most of Arabia was desert and mud house towns scattered all over. I don't understand it when people claim the oil money was a waste. If someone uphold that belief, they are either outsiders ignorant of the situation of Arabia, or Saudi Arabian oblivious to their history and think development can happen overnight.

What hope? If you read any sensible crude oil price forecasts, there's no hope for it to reach even a half of its peak price.

And if Saudi Arabia doesn't learn to produce something else in significant amounts, there's no hope for its economy too.

The latest solar panels efficiency achievement of 26+%, and the new standard of 8 MW for the most productive wind turbines render the new world economy a lot different than it used to be when Brent was well above $100.

The good thing is, we will have a healthier atmosphere, although we may not see a 1 km tower in KSA. Unless their government will realize the need to learn something new and sacrifice the old massive anchor of the fossils-based economy that drags them down.
