However, using only digital platforms does not help. If you look at Saudi before Vision 2030, governmental entities used to do services in a vertical aspect. When Vision 2030 came into play, those services were requested to speak to each other. Therefore, you see all those services horizontally. Local content is one of the major activities the government is focusing on for Vision 2030. If Saudi Arabia wants to enable local content, we need to make sure that we are empowering innovation within the country. Saudi youth play a very important role in local content as well as innovation.
Vision 2030 leads us to a very simple conclusion: we need to produce in an innovative manner. We need capability, we need resources. We need education and Saudi Arabia has been investing in youth for a long time. Saudi has invested in youth by focusing on education. They have sent so many students all over the world to the best universities to make sure that they have great resources and infrastructure for local content. Now they are back. In 2018, for example, there were more newly established businesses than ever in Saudi Arabia. And that gives you an indication that they are coming back not only to have a job or to find a job but to actually create jobs, not only for themselves but for others as well. Saudi has been enabling private-sector small and medium enterprises to be part of their ambitious activities in making local content very important for Vision 2030.
