Saudi housing shortage—innovative solutions through Public Private Partnerships and Islamic finance

Up until recently I lived and worked in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. My time in KSA was a pleasant and an edifying one. I lived in Khobar but travelled extensively across the Kingdom and the neighbouring GCC states. Working at a private Saudi university I interacted with young Saudis regularly. Their aspirations and talents were reassuring. There is nothing to suggest that the situation is any different in the remainder of the GCC.
