In this Global Platform video, Bashar Al Malik, CEO of Saudi Railway Company, talks about restructuring taking place across the industry and SAR’s goal of becoming a logistics centre as part of Vision 2030. In 2019 the government announced that SAR would become Saudi Arabia’s national railway, taking over all operations of the Saudi Railways Organisation. A number of new train lines have also been put into operation to improve passenger travel, support the petrochemicals industry, and ease trade between the East and West.
