The Saudi ambassador to Kenya Ghorm Malhan told reporters in Nairobi that the facility will house banks, exhibition halls, halal food outlets and venues for public lectures.
“The centre will also see our people showcase and share their rich cultural diversities. This will help bring our people closer not only in business but also on social issues,” Mr Malhan said.
The project, which will be implemented through the Kenya Arab Friendship Society (KAFS), is also expected to provide opportunities for businessmen as well as space for artists to display their artistry.
The designs for the proposed King Fahd Cultural Centre were prepared by Adventis Inhouse Africa Ltd., a Nairobi-based architectural firm.
