He added, “Vision 2030 has begun to bear fruit and we have achieved growth in the tourism, entertainment, financial and technological sectors, and the growth was between 3 and 8%.”

“In 2020, we assumed the presidency of the G20 summit and set a very strong agenda, then Coronavirus came and affected everyone, including Saudi Arabia, and oil prices declined, and with it the kingdom’s revenues, but oil prices can be controlled.”
