According to the announcement made on Wednesday by the economy ministry's Faisal bin Fadhil, Saudi Arabia has reserved $800 million for developmental projects in Africa and Asia.

Faisal bin Fadhil said, “Despite the developmental and social progress achieved over the past fifty years, fundamental challenges faced by Least Developed Countries remain and have become more complex and urgent.” 

The Kingdom would continue to collaborate with "international partners," the economy minister stated during his speech, to carry out the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The minister made no specific mention of the different projects for which the funds will be used.
