Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) has ambitions to build an ‘alcohol paradise’. It is located in the city of NEOM. NEOM is one of Saudi Arabia’s projects to start relying on tourism, industry and renewable energy. So far, Saudi Arabia has relied more on the oil sector for its economy. NEOM is part of Saudi Vision 2030 and is expected to be completed in time for 2030.
If confirmed, this will be the latest rule implemented by the royal government that makes Saudi, a conservative country that still implements Islamic sharia law, more moderate. Saudi Arabia has banned the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages throughout the country.
