Saudi Arabia will offer 135 new projects to the private sector worth around 93 billion Saudi riyals ($25 billion), a local newspaper said on Wednesday.
The Arabic language daily Al-Madina said 35 projects would be announced in the third quarter of 2018 and would cover renewable energy and other sectors.
The projects are part of government plans to attract capital into productive sectors within the Kingdom's Vision 2030, it said.
The main sectors targeted in those projects include renewable energy, aviation and water, with total investment of about 49 billion riyals ($13 billion), the paper said, adding that they cover 13 areas of the Kingdom.
