The President pointed out that employees of the presidency are working around the clock in various circumstances to serve the Two Holy Mosques, adding that the operational plan for the presidency was prepared according to studies in light of the conditions being experienced by the world due to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
Sheikh Dr. Al-Sudais stressed that the presidency relied on its plan for ten axes, including directives on scientific and operational excellence, digital transformation, institutional communication, development excellence, social activity, control, workforce, supervisory, and complementary domains.
