The Saudi Public Investment Fund revealed the logo of the Qiddiya Project that plans to build the largest cultural, recreational and sports city in the Kingdom. The design of the innovative logo reflects the unique geography of the region where the city will be established.

The Qiddiya project was announced earlier this year.

The city will be constructed 40 kilometers away from central Riyadh in the Qiddiya region..

The design of the logo was inspired from the breathtaking Tuwaiq mountain range in the Qiddiya region that will overlook the city once it is complete. The lines of the logo reflect the abilities of the residents of the Kingdom and their vibrant colors represent the residents’ diverse capabilities and identities. The logo embodies the project’s goal of providing special recreational destination for Saudis where they will be able to unleash their talents in various fields.

The Qiddiya project highlights the heritage of the region and reflects the beauty of the location that will become an important landmark that will meet the demands of the Kingdom’s recreational, cultural and social needs.

Qiddiya city is one of the significant investment initiatives that provides a diverse number of recreational venues. It also supports the Saudi Vision 2030 that aims at diversifying the sources of national income, bolster the Kingdom’s economy and create job opportunities for the local youth.

Qiddiya city allows visitors to enjoy a number of recreational and educational activities through six main venues that include an amusement park, sports arenas, racing rings, water and snow games, gorgeous natural vistas and several cultural and heritage centers.

Construction of Qiddiya city is expected to begin in 2018 and the first phase of the city will be opened in 2022.

Egypt reduced its external debt by $14 billion in the five months to end-May, the sharpest such decline in the country's history, a statement released on Monday by Egypt's press center said.
The country's external debt fell to $154 billion as of the end of May from $168 billion at the end of December, according to the statement which quoted an unnamed high-level source at the central bank.
Egypt quadrupled its debt over the last nine years to help among others fund a new capital, build infrastructure and support an overvalued currency.
