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.
Indeed this is correct

we can also see the large jumps that Saudi Universities got in this years Uni international uni rankings

you have the educated people, now it is for making foundations for them to use their talents

well safety standards and new regulations

I mean you can build it quickly like those Chinese buildings that broke records but

a) it won't be complex
b) it might deteriorate through time like what we saw in numerous occasions

they are building something that will be there for generations, hopefully

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.
if you followed the news

you would know that they are trying to diversify their economy and already big wigs from

Siemens, Amazon, Soft Bank, Facebook, General Electric, Google, Microsoft, etc... have already visited the Kingdom on numerous occasions to try and help


if it will work? time will tell

I do realize the scale of such movement, but I perceive like it has to be many times larger in its magnitude, in order to succeed. If they realize it, they're saved. Because there's no place for the fossil fuels exporting economies in the decades to come. I hope they will not resist the progress as much as the totalitarian regimes do, otherwise it may lead to almost MadMax-like scenarios.

indeed in order to first get there they need to set the building blocks


I know it may sound nice to just go all out at once but to change ones economy it is a gradual change

they need to ease people slowly from one thing to another

For me 7-10 days for 1 floor is quite fast or rather enough.

Thats very. very slow construction speed, even at 1 floor every 8-9 days. Most new buildings going up are one floor every 3-4 days. Honestly this building has progressed beyond slowly.

Chill, he is just getting some cover, if you ever get some real hard job you'll undertand, working right under the sun can be punishing, imagine now doing that in the middle of the desert.
