UN: Saudi's Al-Ahsa the most creative city in the world

The United Nations chose the city of Al-Ahsa, east of Saudi Arabia as the most creative cities in the world on World Cities day.

According to Reuters, the world is undergoing the largest wave of urban growth in history, with millions of people moving to the fast-growing cities of the developing world, shedding spotlight on them.

In 2014, the United Nations launched Oct. 31 as World Cities Day to promote awareness of global urbanization and highlight the need for cooperation to meet the challenges of growth.

Around 54 percent of the world population currently live in urban areas which is forecast to rise to 66 percent by 2050, while the urban population rose to 3.9 billion in 2014 from 746 million in 1950, according to the United Nations
