Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has unveiled an ambitious plan to develop a resort area on about 50 islands off Saudi Arabia 's Red Sea coast. 
The project is part of a strategy to reduce the Saudi economy’s dependence on oil revenues.

The Red Sea Project will be built on 30,000 square kilometers between the cities of Amlaj and al-Jawh, an area bigger than Belguim. 

It will be financed by the kingdom’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), according to an official statement.
