Princess Reem bint Mansour Al-Saud is a member of the Kingdom’s permanent delegation to the UN in New York.

During a recent UN session, she affirmed that the Kingdom is experiencing a rapidly growing urbanization due to demographic, social and economic growth in the country that resulted in an increase in the number of cities to reach 285.

Princess Reem explained that the Kingdom has successfully coped with the urban challenges resulting from the rapid urban growth and built its strategy in line with its Vision 2030 for sustainable development.

She pointed out the Kingdom’s cooperation with the UN’s program on human settlements in the implementation of a set of programs at domestic level to support the new urban plan, the most important of which is the future program of Saudi cities, which aims to provide a better urban environment in 17 Saudi cities according to the standards of welfare and prosperity of cities.

Princess Reem holds a master's degree in social policy and a Ph.D. in Middle Eastern studies both from Oxford University. 

She is a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government to work on enhancing Saudi labor policies, especially those concerned with women.

Two workers killed at Saudi Arabia's SASREF oil refinery

RIYADH: Two contract workers have been killed at an oil refinery in Saudi Arabia.

Another two contractors were injured at the SASREF plant in Jubail in the incident on Sunday, the company said.

“SASREF immediately activated response teams to identify the source of the incident and responded to the situation,” the statement said.

“The safety of our people and operations is a top priority.”

The company, which is owned by Saudi Aramco, said additional safety measures would be put in place to prevent incidents in the future.

The 305,000 barrel per day SASREF refinery had until September been a joint venture between Aramco and Royal Dutch Shell, according to Reuters.

Aramco bought it as part of a strategy to expand its downstream operations.
