The IPA works to effect organizational development in the Kingdom by offering outstanding, high-quality services at the lowest cost to the public and private sectors while meeting the levels of user expectations and gaining user satisfaction. The cultural growth which the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is undergoing at present is paralleled by human growth, one that aims at the Saudi citizen's mind, though, and education, allowing him to venture into and excel in the various fields of specialization. This growth is an outcome of the sincere efforts and ambitious development plans adopted by the Saudi government under the leadership of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and the faithful Crown Prince. May God grant them both long lives. The government has established institutions of education and training at various levels and with all types of specializations.
