At the same time, both parties will establish a special group for the GCL’s Saudi project to provide all-weather support, ensure the early implementation and production of the project, and provide more green and low-carbon energy to Saudi Arabia and the Middle East region.
Zhu Gongshan expressed that the deep advancement of China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative has brought an unique strategic opportunity for China’s new energy industry in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, highlighting the importance of global connectivity. Currently, GCL Group is accelerating its internationalization progress. GCL is willing to work together with Saudi Arabia, relying on technology, innovation, talent, and other advantages to leverage the unique advantages of GCL FBR granular silicon and other “state-of-the-art PV technologies” to achieve energy conservation and carbon reduction, and provide an inexhaustible source of silicon-based green energy, contributing to Saudi Arabia’s energy transition.
