In the light of celebrating “Saudi Day” at Expo 2020, Invest Saudi, the Kingdom’s investment promotion platform managed by the Ministry of Investment (MISA), hosted the Saudi Arabia Business Briefing to showcase innovative investment opportunities in the Kingdom’s business ecosystem.
The event highlighted the major untapped potential in the Kingdom to attract new and existing investors. As new sectors continue to open up to investment and new structural reforms have streamlined the Saudi business environment, meeting the needs of a growing variety of investor types.
The briefing provided the chance to learn more about initiatives facilitated by Vision 2030 such as the National Investment Strategy, Privatization Program, and Giga projects including NEOM, the Red Sea Project, and Diriyah Gate.
Speakers also attended a networking session with key business officials, which allowed investors to conduct 1:1 meetings and delve further into the Kingdom’s attractive investment opportunities.
Waseem Khashan, deputy of Investment Promotion at the Ministry of Investment, said: “The Saudi Arabia Business Briefing provided an exciting opportunity for investors to learn more about the business ecosystem in Saudi Arabia, as well as how we are collaborating closely with investors to de-risk investments, ensuring the investment experience is positive and supporting long-term success.”
“As we enter a new year and reflect on the Kingdom’s unprecedented transformation under Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s economy remains resilient, providing investors with long-term economic stability.”
“Our Kingdom is open to the world and we invite investors from across the international business community and domestic private sector to step into the world of opportunity that is Saudi Arabia.” He said.
