On Thursday March 1st, 2018, we hosted a public discussion with HRH Reema bint Bandar Al Saud about Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030 and its initiatives for advancing the role of women and youth in the Saudi society and economy, particularly in the business and sports sectors.
Thank you Dr.
The last few days have seen important and potentially defining developments in Saudi Arabia. Traditionally cautious and conservative in the areas of domestic social, political, and economic reform, the Saudi leadership has undertaken dramatic steps to address each of those areas.
Last week Saudi Arabia announced the end of a longstanding ban on female drivers. The decree has been greeted with enthusiasm by regional observers, many of whom have been quick to note the economic dividends that such a move can bring about.
In an abrupt, but not wholly unexpected move, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz announced last week that his 31-year old son, Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, has been appointed as the new Crown Prince, replacing Prince Mohammed bin Nayef.
