Highlighting the significant participation of the Higher Commission for Development of Riyadh (HCDR) at the event, Al-Muqbel said the HCDR is exhibiting the public transport project due to the fact that there is a close relationship between urban development and the public transport project s and their contribution to the overall development in the city in all areas.
