Argentina pledges its support for Saudi Vision 2030
Argentina will lend its wholehearted support to the implementation of the ‘Saudi Vision 2030’ since it is the ideal way for the Kingdom to create more job opportunities for the youths who will be the future generation of the country, said the country’s Ambassador Jaime Sergio Cerda in Riyadh on Sunday.
The envoy was speaking on the Argentine National Day held at the Tuwaiq Palace in the Diplomatic Quarter in the capital on Sunday.
Riyadh Governor Prince Faisal Bin Bandar was the chief at the event hosted by Ambassador Cerda and his wife Sabine Farra, which was attended by senior government officials, members of the Argentine community and diplomats from various foreign missions based in Riyadh.
During his speech, Cerda recalled last week’s Makkah Region Economic Forum held in Jeddah, where participants-national and international experts and businessmen - discussed concrete measures and projects that could be implemented under the ‘Saudi Vision 2030’ program.
“During the forum, the topics of discussions included such as the need for the private sector competiveness at international level, importance of mining sector, boosting production of Saudi manufacturers, flexibility and consensus about the policies, transformation of the Saudi human capital, and the Kingdom as a business platform and logistic connectivity.
“Holding the presidency of the G20, Argentina hopes to forge ahead for a better global economy with the help and guidance of its member countries including Saudi Arabia,” he said, pointing out that upcoming G20 Summit will take place in Buenos Aires in November.
He said Saudi Arabia will take over the presidency of G20 in 2020.
