Neom: the city of 500,000 million that Saudi Arabia is creating and that sponsors the Super Cup

Saudi Arabia is presenting its most pharaonic project to the world during the Super Cup. The country is building the city of the future, called Neom, announcing an initial investment of $500 billion. This money will go towards creating a 170 kilometer long metropolis where there will be no cars and where sustainability will be the key word.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman leads a project that is intended to become the center of the world in the future. The idea of ​​a city where there are more robots than humans, where the energy comes entirely from solar panels and where there is no stress, they seem to be taken from a movie. “It is a land for free and stress-free people. A startup the size of a country. The new era of human progress », they assure in a promotional video about the objective of Neom.

The idea of ​​Neom is based on a city with three levels. The highest, which is on the surface, will be the one that houses homes, parks and business centers. The intermediate, which is already in the basement, will host a large part of the services such as shopping centers, hospitals or educational centers. On the lower level you will find a high-speed transport that has the objective of connecting one side of the city with another in 20 minutes. In addition, there will come all the necessary supplies for a city designed for the most privileged.

Although the 500,000 million dollars may seem an exaggerated figure, Saudi Arabia seeks more independent investors to grow a city that has begun to be built in 2021 in the strictest secrecy. The city is designed so that, for example, physical money does not exist and that everything is done with electronic commerce. “Neom will have the highest per capita economic growth in the world,” they highlight in their promotional video.

For now, this initiative will be announced during the Spanish Super Cup in search of attracting more foreign investment. Saudi Arabia, one of the countries with the largest oil reserves in the world, wants to diversify its economy as other neighboring countries have done and Neom is the answer to their demands. It will not be a matter of three or four years to build a city of this caliber and with these features, but the future is already knocking at the door.
