Saudi Red Sea Authority Partners with Monaco entities To promote Marine Activities


Saudi Arabia has enlisted the help of two of the top yachting organizations from Monaco, which is renowned for providing opportunities for international sailors, in an effort to enhance tourism and marine recreational activities in the Red Sea. With the intention of fostering collaboration in the development of future leaders and human capital, the Saudi Red Sea Authority and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation have signed a memorandum of understanding.  

The agreement will also consider holding joint events and exchanging information and expertise in areas of interest to both parties. The authorities and Monaco Yacht Club signed the other Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), and both sides committed to enhancing their collaboration in planning joint events and advancing sustainable practices in the Red Sea. 

In accordance with the agreement, both parties will cooperate to make the best use of marine industry experts in order to provide courses in navigation, safety, and environmental stewardship. In addition to encouraging the development of Red Sea tourism, the collaborative efforts will also involve research initiatives pertaining to the marine environment and sustainable development.   

The two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) were signed by Bernard D'Alessandri on behalf of the Monaco Yacht Club and Olivier Wenden representing the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. The contracts were signed at the Monaco Yacht Club's headquarters in the presence of Ahmed Al-Khateeb, the Saudi Red Sea Authority's chairman of the board of directors and also the country's minister of tourism.  

Through these agreements, SRSA, which oversees marine tourist operations in the Kingdom, aspires to strengthen its strategic ties with pertinent international organizations in order to advance Red Sea tourism and incorporate best practices from around the world into its operations.
