The Proptech Connection's Ivo Van Breukelen was recently featured in Allwork.Space's article "Living And Working In Megastructures — Exploring Saudi Arabia’s Innovative Vision For The Future Of Work".
In the article, Ivo speaks about the broader Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, an ambitious plan to diversify the economy, improve the quality of life for its citizens, and maintain its global standing.
"Saudi Vision 2030 is a strategic framework launched by Saudi Arabia, aimed at reducing the country’s dependence on oil, diversifying its economy, and developing public service sectors such as health, education, infrastructure, recreation, and tourism," Ivo says,
"The plan is built around three themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy, and an ambitious nation. The objective is to have increased diversification economically, socially, and culturally.".
Ivo also speaks about an update on the progress of The Line. He says,
"They have started with bulldozers and have started with the project. Several of our relationships are working on the project and NEOM has accelerated and is now focusing on delivery. The project is less design focused, and more developer/delivery led right now. All hands on!".
In the future, work within The Line and the Mukaab in Saudi Arabia will be a blend of innovation, sustainability, and advanced technology.
