King Khalid University Rector, His Excellency Prof. Falleh Al-Solamy, congratulated the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud — may Allah protect them — on the anniversary of the pledge of allegiance to the Crown Prince, stressing that this anniversary is beloved by the Saudi people.

 

Rector Al-Solamy applauded the efforts of His Royal Highness in the development of all industries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, stressing that His Royal Highness works within a well-developed strategic plan to assure the growth and development of our country and the achievement of Vision 2030. He then explained what the Kingdom has achieved under the guidance of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud is a source of honor and pride. This will encourage Saudi youth to devote all efforts to serve and build our beloved country, he related. He pointed out that the Kingdom is currently blessed with a strategic, ambitious, and influential international leader who has contributed to the growth and development of Saudi education, infrastructure, human capital, economies of scale, female empowerment, and social change. His Excellency emphasized that His Royal Highness is a reflection of what a leader is, who under the guidance of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, strives towards creating a balanced modernized economy for a better, brighter, bolder future through peace and prosperity.

 

Rector Al-Solamy: His Royal Highness has created a culture of hard work, integrity and prosperity.

 

Rector Al-Solamy concluded by asking Allah to perpetuate the security and prosperity of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and to bless the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud to achieve the Kingdom's aspired vision.

 

Representing university leadership, Vice Rector, Prof. Muhammad Al-Hasoon, Vice Rector of Academic Affairs, Prof. Saad Du'ajim, Vice Rector of Graduate Studies, Prof. Saad Al-Amri, Vice Rector of Academic Development and Quality, Prof. Merzin Al-Shahrani, Vice Rector of Project Management, Dr. Mohammad Adham, and Vice Rector of Female Academic Affairs, Dr. Khlood Abu Melha, reflected upon a number of strategic projects and programs by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud, which have revolutionized the economic and social life of Saudi Arabia. They asserted that His Royal Highness is an outstanding character and an unparalleled strategic leader who has contributed to a massive leap in the prosperity of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

 

Prof. Hussein Mohammed Al-Obaid, Associate Professor at the Business School and General Supervisor of the Department of Public Resources, said: "On the anniversary of the pledge of allegiance to His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz and following the display of the Kingdom's most prominent economic projects achieved during the recent years, we find that the Saudi economy has entered a new era. These successes have taken place since the appointment of the Crown Prince as Chairman of the Council of Economic Affairs and Development and Saudi Aramco's highest council. With that being said, the launch of Vision 2030 and his eagerness to create major economic opportunities will bode well for the future of the Saudi economy through several pillars."

 

Al-Obaid reviewed the most prominent initiatives, first of which was developed to reinforce the Kingdom's status as the leading economic heavyweight in the region and to consolidate its global position sponsored by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) under the tutelage of HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud and the Future Investment Initiative (FII). In 2017, the first initiative was successful in hosting 2,000 economists and businessmen, while in its second edition the initiative hosted 4,000 businessmen and economists representing 140 international institutions — these initiatives aimed at linking the Saudi economy with leading economies in the global market. Of noteworthy mention, plans are underway to host G20 (or Group of Twenty) in 2020.

 

Al-Obaid explained that the second aspect is the substantial investment in the Kingdom's unique geographical location and the development of industrial, commercial and technical centers; foremost of which is the NEOM mega-city project, the Red Sea city for 'dreamers,' which has an estimated value of 500 billion riyals. Additionally, under the tutelage of the Crown Prince, the King Salman Energy Park (SPARK) is expected to contribute $5.87bn to Saudi Arabia's GDP and create up to 100,000 jobs by 2035. This is also complemented by offering the global market an opportunity to invest in Saudi Aramco with an initial public offering slated to take place in the near future.

 

The third aspect discussed by Al-Obaid was balancing public fiscal stability, which contributed to the reduction of the operational costs of government agencies, followed by the return of nearly 400 billion riyals to the state treasury.

 

Al-Obaid added that these three aspects outline the future of the Saudi economy, which was expertly managed by His Royal Highness not only to make the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia one of the most attractive investment locations in the world but also to create a renaissance in the Kingdom. Of noteworthy mention, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) has retained its position as the world's 6th largest sovereign wealth fund (SWF) with a net worth of $515.6 billion. Further points of international economic achievement include:

 

  • Moody's Investor Service has affirmed the government of Saudi Arabia's A1 rating with a stable outlook;
  • 2nd in world economic reforms;
  • 9th in entrepreneurship power impact;
  • PIF maintains its 10th spot with assets valued at $360 billion.

 

"All these indicators of the development of the Saudi economy are the result of strategic economic planning and the transformation to a diversified economy fueled by the launch of the Kingdom's 2030 vision and the supervision of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud — may Allah protect him," concluded Al-Obaid.

 

On behalf of King Khalid University, we are privileged and honored to celebrate the anniversary of allegiance to His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense. We are most grateful for our wise and generous leaders and their renaissance strategies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
