Saudi Arabia Announces $6bn Investments in Steel Complex and EV

Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Industry and Mineral Resources said it has secured $6 billion for a steel plate mill complex and electric vehicle battery metals plant as part of plans to lure $32 billion of investment into the mining sector.


The ministry’s target would fund nine mining projects for midstream minerals and metals, said Industry and Mineral Resources Minister, according to a statement.


The nine projects include a $4 billion steel plate mill complex for the shipbuilding, oil and gas, construction and defence sectors and a “green” flat steel complex that will supply the automotive, food packaging, machinery and equipment, and other industrial sectors. Both projects are already underway, as is a $2 billion EV battery metals plant.
