Abstract:

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's Saudi Vision 2030 and accompanying social reforms reforms have attracted a great deal of media attention. However, what young Saudis consider important in the Vision is less often heard, even though with seventy percent of the Kingdom's population under the age of thirty their aspirations are clearly critical. Therefore, the aim of this panel is to allow four up-and-coming young Saudis to share their insights and opinions about how their own areas of expertise can benefit Saudi Vision 2030, their views on societal transformation and their aspirations for the future of Saudi Arabia.
