Strategic Goal

The Riyadh Economic Forum aims to be a strategic think tank to address the national economic issues both theoretically and practically using a different methodology based on the principle of Think Tank brain storming to contribute to the sustainable economic development.

Riyadh Chamber's launch of the Riyadh Economic Forum under the gracious patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques since almost 18 years now has been to keep abreast of development requirements and to have the private sector play its role of promoting research and studies. This would provide the economic community with vital researches and studies, which would contribute to the development of instruments and procedures. We are happy with what the Forum has now achieved during its past sessions and pleased with the confidence given thereto by the decision makers. This confidence is undoubtedly reinforced by the gracious patronage to the Forum by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, may Allah protect him
