An analysis of Saudi Arabia's handling of COVID-19.

Sneak peek at what's inside:

This publication was compiled over the course of several months of interviews in Saudi Arabia after the COVID-19 outbreak. The pace of internal reform in the Kingdom has been significant over the past three-five years, and in many cases the old, low-tech, and sclerotic public service that had so long been a feature of Saudi Arabia was vastly changed when the pandemic arrived in Riyadh. Nonetheless, this virus has challenged the modernizing bureaucracy in the desert at a magnitude that no other event, be it war or reform, has even come close to doing.

This 52-page report features interviews with big names across the Saudi economy, including:

  • Bandar bin Ibrahim Alkhorayef, Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources, Saudi Arabia
  • Ahmad bin Fahad, Governor, Technical and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC)
  • Khalid Mohammed Al Salem, Director General, Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technology Zones (MODON)
  • Hisham bin Saad Aljadhey, CEO, Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA)
  • Waleed Al Harkan, Former CEO, Lebara Mobile KSA
  • Ammar A. AlKhudairy, Chairman, Samba Financial Group
  • Fahad Al-Shebel, CEO, NUPCO

 

It also features a range of articles and analysis, including on:

  • Government after COVID-19
  • COVID-19 apps
  • Remote learning
  • Islamic finance
  • Medical supply chains and food security
