About the Authority
Since its development in 2001, the Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technology Zones “MODON” undertakes the mission of developing industrial lands that offer world class integrated services. Today, the authority oversees 35 industrial cities, operating and under development, in various regions across the Kingdom. The authority oversees private industrial cities as well. The developed industrial lands occupy an area that exceeds 194.6 million m2 and comprises of 3,474 producing factories with 6,190 industrial, service and logistics contracts and more than 435 thousand employees.
“MODON” relies on a defined institution structure; to maximize the benefits of public and private sector partnership and effectively offer industrial lands. This is carried out in a business environment characterized by transparency in role setting between “MODON” and the private sector, exemplified in distinguishing between planning, monitoring and administrative roles that “MODON” accomplishes, and financing, establishing and operating roles that are usually carried out competitively by the private sector.
“MODON” has successfully promoted the advantages and incentives offered by its industrial cities. This resulted in attracting global companies that occupy a leader’s position in the industrial field, apart from numerous global investments with added value to the Saudi industrial investment. “MODON” has also achieved a great improvement in local partnerships by attracting investments that exceeded 500 billion Saudi Riyals up until today, with 6,271 industrial, service and logistics contracts that include different industrial and investment activities.
Among “MODON” goals is offering an ideal investment environment to attract unique investments that contribute to the national economy and the realization of the Kingdom’s leadership aspirations. “MODON” actively ensures enhancing “MODON” Oases and technology zones around the Kingdom, while encouraging added value industries; such as gas, energy, mining and others. All of “MODON” industrial cities are supported with necessary logistical solutions. We are also working on connecting cities with air and land transport networks; for them to become selected cities fully equipped with housing and services.
“MODON” strives to develop its industrial cities in ways that provide investment opportunities for capital from all over the world. It takes the mission of locating economic strength, providing work opportunities and developing human capabilities. This is done through facilitated procedures and different insurances provided to small and medium enterprises, businessmen, and large local enterprises. “MODON” also works on attracting global companies to contribute to the realization of Vision 2030 in terms of diversifying the national economy and encouraging the Saudization of the industrial sector in the Kingdom, while competitively raising the quality standards and work force capabilities.
