Twenty-seven Saudi leaders from government, business and non-profit sectors presented their final proposals for the Leaders 2030 program at a ceremony on Sunday.
The program will be overseen by the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Foundation, or MISK, which allows talented individuals to present innovative ideas to meet Vision 2030 objectives for economic development.
The ceremony was attended by Princess Haifa bint Mohammed, deputy minister of tourism; Dr. Ghassan Al-Shibl, deputy chairman of the board of directors of MISK; Dr. Majid Al-Tuwaijri, supervisor of the National Center for Artificial Intelligence; Mohammed Al-Shuaibi, director of special projects in the Strategic Management Office; and Dr. Badr Al-Badr, CEO of MISK.
Among the proposals presented were ideas to improve tourism to Saudi Arabia and use artificial intelligence to advance digitalization in the country.
The Leaders 2030 program focuses on analyzing the Kingdom’s local experiences and development opportunities. It also organizes field visits to leading organizations to benefit from their experiences.
Saleh Al-Mohaimeed, board chairman of the Centre for Leadership Studies, spoke to Arab News about the transformative potential of proper leadership as “a great gift for humanity.”
He said that a good leader “lights up the way for society by investing his abilities, experience and knowledge to inspire others.”
“Vision 2030 has motivated us as we aspire to be a lively community, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation,” he added.
