A PANEL DISCUSSION BY YOUNG SAUDI ACADEMICS
Kingdom in Transition: The Perspective and Aspirations of Young Saudis.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Mark C.Thompson, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals; King Faisal Center for Research & Islamic Studies.
The panellists will be:

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's Saudi Vision 2030 and accompanying social reforms have attracted a great deal of media attention. However, what young Saudis consider important in the Vision is often overlooked even though with seventy percent of the Kingdom's population under the age of thirty it is imperative that Saudi youth have a say in the future of their country. Therefore, the aim of this panel is
to allow four up-and-coming young Saudis to share their insights and opinions about how their own areas of expertise can benefit Saudi Vision 2030, their views on societal transformation and their aspirations for the future of Saudi Arabia.
Venue: Arab-British Chamber of Commerce, 43 Upper Grosvenor Street, London W1K 2NJ.
There will be a drinks reception after the discussion.
