We thank Almighty Allah for the countless blessings bestowed upon this
country by Him and for the security, welfare and prosperity we are enjoying now under the
wise leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the Crown prince, may Allah
History shall note that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has achieved during
a very short period of time with the help of Allah, so many achievements through its
ambitious development plans. Among these achievements are the development of a modern air
transport industry and the laying down of a strong foundation for civil aviation as an
essential tool for progress. The Governments concern wasnt focused on just the
infrastructure, installations and facilities alone, though this fact cannot be denied, but
in fact at the top of the governments concern comes the priority of building the
Saudi individual, his development and the provision for the best services and care for him
according to the highest international standards and parameters.
The Kingdoms celebration of the inauguration of KFIA today is
considered as an assurance of the governments determination to continue
establishment of more development projects that aim to serve citizens. This airport with
its strategic geographical location is expected to play a major role in the development of
this region, enhance its economic and commercial activities, act as a focal point for
attracting investment and create job opportunities for its youth.
Finally, I would like to emphasize the fact that the government of the
Custodian of the Two Holy mosques and the Crown prince spares no effort in trying to
develop all aspects of our life education, health, transport, etc., with the noble
intention of serving this country and its citizens and strengthening the position of the
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the international arena.
