ALULA: With the opening of a new office in AlUla, the heritage hub located in the northwest of Saudi Arabia, PwC seeks to serve the city’s startups and entrepreneurs, said the firm’s country senior leader in Saudi Arabia.
The move follows a five-year presence in the city since 2017 and seeks to “solidify PwC’s presence in AlUla,” Riyadh Al-Najjar told Arab News at the inauguration of the company’s offices in the city last week.
The company is conducting training sessions for local entrepreneurs to help them keep up with the ongoing transformation of the region, he said.
Describing AlUla as a “great example” of the Kingdom’s transformation, Al-Najjar said: “It’s fully aligned with our mission at PWC to solve important problems and build trust in society.”
He highlighted the importance of a solid partnership between the private and the public sectors. Al-Najjar said small and medium enterprises have a lot to contribute to Vision 2030 and the giga projects being carried out under its umbrella.
PwC already has five offices in the Kingdom with around 1,800 employees half of them are Saudi nationals. “There is a huge demand for Saudi talents, and we will continue to invest in them,” he said.
