What Future for Saudi Arabia? Keys to competitiveness, investment, innovation, education, diversify economy - Saudi Arabia keynote

Future of Emerging Markets - Keynote Speaker

Future of Saudi Arabia - keynote at Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF 2015) organised by SAGIA. Comments by Patrick Dixon, Chairman Global Change Ltd, following keynote at the Riyadh event.

With a young and rapidly growing population, a key government objective is to create several million new jobs over the next few years, for nationals rather than for migrant workers.  Indeed the future well-being of the nation may depend on being able to generate enough new jobs, particularly for those from 18-30 years old.  While national policies have been developed to encourage companies to employ local people, Saudi Arabia is also looking to stimulate growth of local business and encourage inward investment. Need a world-class keynote speaker on competitiveness in the Middle East for your event?

Fall in technology and connectivity costs.  Universal access to global web.  1 billion children alive today.  85% of humanity living in emerging markets in 10 years. Huge growth in life expectancy in many nations.  Huge growth in multinational mergers and global trade. Increased automation in cars, homes, factories and offices.  Tribalism feeding radicalism and terrorism.  Search for purpose, meaning and spirituality, coupled with worries about sustainability.  

(And watch out also for Wildcards - I warned in the same book that Number 1 on my list was risk of a new global viral pandemic - written several years before COVID.)
