Higher price of water for non-residential consumers

Saudi Arabia will raise the price of water for non-residential consumers, local media reported, a sign the government is cutting back an expensive system of subsidies as low oil prices strain its finances.

The rate for industrial, government or large corporate users will rise to 9 riyals per cubic metre from 4 riyals now, starting on December 16, the local newspaper Al Watan reported.
