Saudi Arabia’s long-term vision for economic advancement and diversification is underpinned by commitments that are aligned with ESG principles, with a focus on easing dependence on fossil fuels, expanding opportunities to all segments of society and enhancing the effectiveness of government services. Digital transformation will be key to the full realisation of the vision, with technological innovations helping to accelerate inclusive growth and unlock latent potential.

Growing social awareness of this potential bodes well for the development and adoption of innovations with positive multiplier effects. As the company with the largest telecoms market share in the Kingdom, stc will be at the forefront of digital transformation in the years ahead. With over 4000 5G towers and three new mega-data centres operationalised in the Kingdom by end-2020, stc is investing heavily in building the future-oriented digital infrastructure required to expand connectivity and ensure businesses and consumers can fully capitalise on emerging opportunities.
