Saudi Arabia was seeking to support entrepreneurs in building large projects, as well as in building the local economy, as a result of the instructions of the Saudi government at the time, where this was the wise will of the founder of the Kingdom King Abdulaziz who had a pioneering non-stereotypical in maintaining the state pillars of the state in which we live today.
Complementing the state's progress in this regard, the concept of the system has been developed and placed under the spotlight of entrepreneurship and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and the government's Centennial Fund program has been established for this purpose. Today, we see the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman--May God preserve him--elevate the pace of developing the concept of the system to make it a private sector and an integral part of the economic system in our Vision 2030, which is managed and implemented by His Highness Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman-May God preserve him- "The Godfather of Vision ".
