AGSIW hosted a roundtable discussion with Jane Kinninmont, deputy head and senior research fellow of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Chatham House. Senior Resident Scholar Karen E. Young moderated the discussion.


This discussion considered Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visits to the United Kingdom and United States, within the broader discussion of Saudi Vision 2030. How can new investments and opportunities for economic cooperation with the United States and United Kingdom assist in attaining the vision’s goals? What is the current state of the Vision 2030 reforms? And how are investors calculating risks and rewards in Saudi Arabia, especially in light of the recent anti-corruption campaign?
