RIYADH: Malaysia has identified several new infrastructure development projects in Saudi Arabia that can be carried out in partnership involving companies from both countries.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said among the projects were the construction of roads, particularly in Mecca and Jeddah.

“We will also carry out follow-up action on projects developed by Malaysian companies in Saudi Arabia,” he told Malaysian journalists on arrival here on Wednesday, in conjunction with his five-day official visit to the country.

Dr Ahmad Zahid said Malaysia was also keen to forge smart partnerships involving Malaysian and Saudi Arabian companies in the construction of other infrastructure there.

“This follow-up action will certainly not only benefit Malaysian companies but how we can contribute in terms of expertise in technical fields,” he said.

Dr Ahmad Zahid said this was prompted by the success of Prasarana Malaysia Berhad in handling Makkah Metro where the excellent service of the company was recognised by the Saudi Arabian government. – Bernama
