During a high-level panel titled ‘Keeping the Lights amid Geopolitical Fracture’, His Highness Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, emphasized the need for near-term stability, especially in the world’s energy markets.
“The Kingdom is investing almost $200 billion in renewable energy at home and abroad. Our companies are active in 21 countries, deploying solar and wind energy and other sorts of renewable energy,” he said.
“In the meantime, we need to maintain a supply of traditional energies that are priced in a way that ensures stability – and we will continue to address this in a responsible way,” His Highness Prince Faisal added.
Meanwhile, His Excellency Bandar bin Ibrahim Alkhorayef, Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources, participated in ‘The Return of Manufacturing’, where he highlighted the need for governments to foster innovation and co-investments in the industrial sector.
“You need the right regulatory framework to allow investment flow,” he said. Alkhorayef also emphasized the need for the right infrastructure to enable factories of the future, as well as the importance of governments to proactively develop skilled human capital to drive sustainable growth.
