MBC Media Group inaugurated its new headquarters in Riyadh during a huge ceremony attended by Acting Minister of Media Majed al-Qasabi and several prominent figures, including media professionals and officials.
Chairman of the Board of Directors of MBC Group Waleed al-Ibrahim said during the ceremony that the Group now launches new headquarters from the homeland, adding that they have always carried this dream since Saudi Arabia introduced its first channel, MBC 1, in London in 1991.
He expressed his happiness over the remarkable development that Saudi Arabia is witnessing under the wise leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
He also highlighted the unlimited support being extended by the leadership for the sectors of culture, creativity, media, and entertainment.
"We are working with all determination to make MBC Group one of the most prominent international media organizations in the world," he said, adding that the Group will be stronger in Saudi Arabia.
He announced that MBC will take its projects to the new levels it has always tried to reach.
Ibrahim thanked the UAE government and its people for their support during the Group's time in Dubai. He said the shifting of the headquarters is "moving from one home to another."
Referring to MBC's upcoming strategy, Ibrahim explained that in the previous stages, the Group sought to reach Arab viewers, and it is now looking forward to becoming one of the most prominent international media organizations.
"We are working with determination to make MBC Group one of the most prominent international media organizations. The coming years will witness global activities that draw their story from the Arab history."
