 Speech by Secretary General of the “SAUDI EXPORTS” on the 85th National Day

calendar 9/22/2015 12:00 PM


The 85th anniversary of national day of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which we celebrate today stirs up in us remembrances of old glory led by true men who left their fingerprints on history. They established eternal values that have meanings of loyalty and belonging to the soil of this dear homeland; a legacy embraced by generations, and a story from which we've learned to raise our heads high, with pride and splendor.

God the Almighty has enabled the founder of this holy land, King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al Saud, May his soul rest in peace, with the traits of pride that made him build an impregnable powerful Kingdom, that has been a unique historical landmark. He united the peoples of the Arabian Peninsula to be one nation guided by the holy Quran and the Prophet's tradition. The most precious gains of this nation are the blessings of safety and security and the most beautiful values of tolerance and coexistence among all members of the society.

The eighty-fifth National Day takes us back to the thirties of the last century, when the founder believed that the wealth of this land is the cohesion of its citizens and we were rewarded when Allah endowed us with oil and the first shipment was exported. That was Allah's gift for the people of this pure land. Then, the march of development and growth began. More glories were recorded through generations bearing promises for a better future and more welfare for each citizen. The vision of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques is only a testament to the insight carried by the country's leaders, one generation after another. This vision calls for encouraging diversifying sources of income where non-oil exported products form a key factor in its inputs, as such our national firms will be motivated to grow their business which will be reflected positively on our national economy as a whole.

The founder and his royal sons after him up to the era of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud - May God protect him - believed that man is the basis for building the nations. It is here were the first cities built in the desert, and where the largest road networks in the world were built in the most difficult geographical conditions. From here also the Kingdom took its place as an important country in economic development of the whole world, and gained for itself a leading role which it has practiced with intelligent responsibility, as such, KSA became an important axis in maintaining political and economic stability in the whole world.

History refuses but to record a new glory for this country every year. Today, we celebrate the 85th National Day and renew our loyalty and obedience to the leader, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud -May God Protect him- to remember the true values of brotherhood, wisdom of the farsighted and farsightedness of the Arab, which were represented in his Islamic and Arab position - through solidarity with our brothers in Yemen. I can tell the promise of victory coming true and pray to God to preserve our brave soldiers on the boarders of the country and take this country from victory to empowerment under the banner of glorious unification.

I pray to God Almighty to preserve this blessed country and its leader, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud - May God protect him - Crown Prince, His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz Al Saud -May God protect him- the Deputy Crown Prince, His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud -May God protect him- and the people of Saudi Arabia, to live in good health and prosperity, while we look forward in pride and empowerment to a glorious future.
