Economic Cities ~ KAEC in Saudi & Beyond...

As I've written about before, the development of the King Abdullah Economic City or KAEC (pronounced "CAKE") is a very exciting gigaproject. The BBC surveys the latest in an update by Crispin Thorold entitled New cities rise from Saudi desert. I'm interested in this because such Economic Cities are relevant not only in the KSA but more generally in the MENACA region, from the Moroccan-Med cities to the Vital Levant to the Boom Cities of the Gulf to the emergent developments along the New Silk Road.
