Despite some complex challenges ahead, the Kingdom have long-term plans to overcome them. In the past 25 years, the Saudi economy has grown by an annual average rate of more than 4%, contributing to the creation of millions of new jobs. Although the Kingdom is already among the 20th largest economies in the world, its ambitions are even greater. The Kingdom aspires to have, by 2030, an even higher ranking, even with standing the present global economic slowdown. The key here will be an investment in all resources in order to diversify the economy, unleash the capabilities of other promising economic sectors and privatisation of some government services.


Leveraging its unique position

The Kingdom will aim to maximise the benefits of this strategic geographic position, by establishing new strategic partnerships to grow the economy and help Saudi companies to increase exports. The Kingdom will leverage this unique logistic positioning to vast energy sources to stimulate a new phase of industrialisation and increase its exports and re-exports.

The Kingdom is willing to build a country with collective national efforts where all citizens contribute to it. In turn, all citizens have roles to fulfill, regardless if they are working in the public, private or non-profit sectors. All citizens will work continuously to assist in the achievement of these ambitions and be collectively responsible as part of the Kingdom, society and families.
