Subject: Saudi consulate in Hyderabad by 2013


HYDERABAD: With a large number of migrants from the state working in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), the oil-rich country wants to set up its consulate in the city, second in the country after Mumbai.

Highly-placed sources in the General Administration Department (GAD) told STOI that officials of the state government and diplomats from Saudi Arabia were working out the details. The government has welcomed Saudi Arabia's proposal to set up its consulate in the city and has offered to allot necessary land to build their offices.

So far, five countries -- the Unites States of America (USA), the Islamic Republic of Iran, the United Kingdom, Turkey and Russia -- have their consulates in the city. The state government wants to create a 'Diplomatic Enclave' in the city where consulates of various countries could be located, sources said.

Saudi Arabia wants to set up its consulate office in the city as a large number of workers from the state, particularly Telangana region, work in private companies in the Arab state. "Though workers from Kurnool, Krishna, East Godavari and West Godavari districts also head to the Islamic state, migration from Telangana districts is high," sources said. If all goes well, Saudi Arabia would open its consulate in the city by 2013.
