New Agency to Facilitate Visitors to Holy Cities in Saudi Arabia

Riyadh, MINA – The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques has set up a new agency to enhance digital services for pilgrims.

Undersecretary of the Translation and Technical Affairs Agency, Dr. Khalil bin Ibrahim Al-Subhi, said the organization would use modern technologies to convey the message of moderation to the world in various languages.

According to Arab News, he added that the establishment of the agency was aimed at consolidating the role of technology and innovation in achieving the objectives of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 reform plan.

Advanced technologies and innovation were a key pillar in reaching 30 million visitors to the Two Holy Mosques by the year 2030 and providing the best services for them, said Al-Subhi.
