Saudi Arabia is developing plans to create new economic cities throughout the country.

"Saudi Arabia is one of only a few fast-growing countries in the world with a high per capita income of $20,700 (2007). Saudi Arabia will be launching six "economic cities" (e.g. King Abdullah Economic City) which are planned to be completed by 2020. These six new industrialized cities are intended to diversify the economy of Saudi Arabia, and are expected to increase the per capita income. The King of Saudi Arabia has announced that the per capita income is forecast, to rise from $15,000 in 2006 to $33,500 in 2020.[34] The cities will be spread around Saudi Arabia to promote diversification for each region and their economy, and the cities are projected to contribute $150 billion to the GDP.

The urban areas of Riyadh and Jeddah are expected to contribute $287 billion dollars by the year 2020.

This could help local economies that are weak by creating new revenue streams for the country. Economic cities could also attract talent and resources from around the world into a concentrated area."
