He said the kingdom is finally waking up to ideas he’s been promoting for years. “A lot has been invested, not in the tourism sites as we would like to see it, but the supporting infrastructure -- airports and roads and so on,” Prince Sultan said in an interview in Riyadh. He dismissed concerns that opening up the conservative kingdom to foreigners would cause trouble. “People would say the social environment isnt right,” he said. “I keep telling them: the social environment will follow. And that is what’s happening today.” Waiting for tourists Prince Sultan reels off a list of museums that are about to open and others he plans to commission. They will let Muslims learn about Islam in the place where it was born, he said. The religious dimension may help win backing from Saudi Arabia’s powerful clerics, who often oppose change. Investment in cultural heritage is underway too: The government has set aside 5 billion riyals ($1.

Patent and trademark filings are usually dipped in semblances of curiosity for both the potential they offer and disappointments that can come when they dont come to pass. All of that means little when you’re talking about a company like Ferrari that’s known for following through on the patents it files, at least in one form or another. That’s a big reason why these new patent design the Italian automaker reportedly filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office back in August 2016 makes for an intriguing evidence of a new Ferrari that could be released this year. After all, the Prancing Horse is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2017 and the company has made it clear that it’s got big plans in store for its seventh decade of existence. The patent itself doesnt reveal much regarding details, but it does mention the design of the car was penned by no less than Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari’s head of design.

Renault has been pretty successful lately, with 2016 marking the debut of the fourth-generation Megane, which can now be had as a five-door hatchback, four-door sedan, and as an estate. Things are about to get a little juicier in the Megane stable, however, as we’ve just received some pictures of what we believe to be the Megane R.S. prototype putting in some work on public roads. Right now, the car is wearing all the gear of the Megane GT, but there are a couple of clues that give this model away as a prototype – like those center-mounted exhaust outlets poking out of the rear bumper, for instance. The exhaust outlets arent all we have to go by, but we’ll get more into that later. For now, we have some very interesting possibilities to consider. First, let’s start off by saying that the Megane R.S. will only be available as a five-door hatchback since Renault has no plans for a coupe variant of the Megane, so there’s that.

“This decline in share is also to do with supply constraints and IT/ITeS companies were forced to postpone their expansion plans,” he said, adding that Gurgaon is still a market driven by information technology and IT-enabled service companies. Drop in share of IT companies was made up to an extent by those in financial services and manufacturing sectors, which increased to 20% and 11%, respectively. Still, Gurgaon remained the preferred choice among office space occupiers in the National Capital Region, accounting for 51% of total absorption, followed by Noida with 36% and Delhi with 13%. The average deal size in Gurgaon increased to 40,000 sq ft last year from 31,300 sq ft in 2015, with transactions concentrated along Sohna Road, National Highway 8 and Udyog Vihar due to their affordability. About 9 million sq ft of office space was available for lease in Gurgaon at end of 2016, against 10.
