About the Country

Saudi Arabia“All success stories start with a vision and successful visions are based on strong pillars” – said Crown Prince and Chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud. True to his words and with three key strong pillars in mind, the Crown Prince announced the kingdom’s Vision 2030 in 2016, a huge economic reform which set the kingdom on a course of rapid transformation that aims to diversify the Arabian Gulf’s largest economy away from oil.  At its core, the plan calls for increasing non-oil revenue more than threefold to 600 billion Saudi riyals by 2020 and fivefold, to 1 trillion riyals, by 2030. Other targets include the localisation of oil and gas sectors from 40 per cent in 2015 to 75 per cent by 2030.

In line with this vision, The World CIO 200 Summit 2020 will bring together the digital leaders who have gone the extra mile in living up to the expectations of their organization and thereby the nation. Join the country’s top CIOs at The World CIO Summit 2020 as we divulge industry pivotal areas through our focused keynotes, TECHTalk and expert panel discussion
