Regional leaders contribute to Al-Rajol magazine profile of Saudi crown prince

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
JEDDAH: Leaders from across the Middle East are among the contributors to Al-Rajol magazine’s latest issue, which spotlights Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, deputy premier and interior minister.
In a series of articles and columns written by close acquaintances, the magazine reveals the personality traits, goals and leadership style of the man driving the Kingdom’s economic transformation.
“The Saudi economic vision is a live model for exploring the future in a modern sustainable approach,” wrote Bahraini Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa.
“It also recognizes the kingdom’s strengths at present, and draws from that to establish an even brighter future. Prince Mohammed’s contribution to the engineering of Vision 2030 is a true reflection of his belief in Saudi Arabia’s youth, and he will go out of his way to achieve those objectives.”
Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi is among more than 30 contributors who wrote in the issue.
He praised Prince Mohammed’s leadership of the Arab coalition that has battled Iran-backed Houthi militias in Yemen for more than two years.
Hadi drew attention to the coalition quickly establishing control of Yemeni airspace, and targeting insurgents’ air defenses and military planes.
Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri said: “Once you get to know Prince Mohammed bin Salman, you’ll discover a new model of Arab leadership. He is a young, charismatic symbol who has played a distinctive role both in the private and public sectors, and within such a short time frame.”
Al-Hariri added: “The Lebanese people will never forget the Kingdom’s support and its efforts to end the Lebanese civil war.”
Egyptian Culture Minister Hilmi Al-Namnam wrote: “With the coming of the Saudi Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman, there was a great transformation which was widely noticed by politicians around the world. This same effect was reechoed by the Saudi Crown Prince in various meetings inside and outside the Kingdom.”
Sheikhs from the Senior Council of Scholars also contributed to the issue, in a series of columns highlighting his “unique approach” that has preserved Shariah law and other social traditions and customs.
Al-Rajol’s latest issue also includes contributions from governors of provinces and their deputies in the Kingdom, reflecting on Prince Mohammed as both a family man and a highly influential leader within the royal family.
Several Saudi ministers give an insight into the government’s workflow, and how decisions are made via daily workshops with a strong emphasis on speed and productivity.
