Saudi Arabia has consistently prioritised the education sector, with significant government spending and wide-ranging reforms that seek to improve learning outcomes and revise curricula to meet the needs of the current and future economy, in line with the goals of the Vision 2030 socio-economic development blueprint. The focus is on preparing the workforce for the technology-driven global economy by enhancing technological proficiency and critical-thinking skills. Technology is being integrated into education, expanding access to high-quality learning through interactive software and online programmes. The Kingdom’s strategic approach combines centralised policy-making with decentralised implementation to empower local education offices. Ongoing education reforms are set to boost economic dynamism, global competitiveness, innovation and digitalisation. As the education system improves, opportunities are opening up for private investment to raise standards and strengthen infrastructure.
