10:30 AM INDUSTRY PANEL DISCUSSION - DRIVING: Experience GCC’s Vision And Economic Strategies

Non-oil exports (including re-exports) have increased from 16% of non-oil GDP in 2000 to 32% in 2017, says IMF. With tech advancements making their way to infrastructure creation, projects such as NEOM, Saad Al-Abdullah City, King Abdullah Economic City, Dubai Silicon Park, etc. mark a diversion from industrial infrastructure to sustainable living. Join this discussion on how to bring about diversification in the GCC markets.
