Hyundai Elevator expressed optimism about possible participation in the mega project to build NEOM in Saudi Arabia via the company's Chinese subsidiary, which celebrated its 30th anniversary on Thursday.
The remarks came after Hyundai Group Chairwoman Hyun Jeong-eun met with NEOM CEO Nadhmi Al-Nasr last month at the Saudi Arabian state-run company's exhibition in Seoul, where Hyundai Elevator showcased its smart city technologies.
