Al-Jouf Gov. Prince Faisal bin Nawaf witnessed the signing of an agreement, between Al-Jouf principality and the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture, that aims to provide greater support to empower small, family-run rural businesses.
The initiative is designed help families in rural areas who are running cottage industries and micro-businesses to improve and sustain their income and standard of living, create self-employment opportunities and transform their projects into competitive entrepreneurial businesses that can withstand market challenges.
The agreement was signed by Mansour Al-Mushaiti, the deputy minister of environment, water and agriculture, and Hussein Al-Sultan, Al-Jouf’s undersecretary, in the presence of Abdulrahman Al-Fadhli, minister of environment, water and agriculture.
The Ministry has launched a number of initiatives designed to contribute to the achievement of sustainable-development goals as part of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 program of reforms.
It is also supporting the implementation of the National Transformation Program, which aims to achieve sustainable development based on principles such as sustainable economic growth, social development and protection of the environment and natural resources.
