Public Transport in Saudi Arabia
by Mitsuru Ito
Public transport isn't popular in Saudi Arabia. So on weekends there is always a big traffic jam. I learned this in our textbook. Can Japan do anything about it?
Recently, the Japanese government and many companies have tried to export infrastructure for emerging countries and developing countries.
I think Japan should supply trains for Saudi Arabia, because Japan has great expertise and Japanese trains are very comfortable. They are roomy and quiet. Besides, Japan would be contributing to improving the Saudi lifestyle.
If there are trains in Saudi Arabia, people can spend their time more usefully. And the Saudi Arabian economy can improve.
Furthermore, the Japanese economy would improve, too.
