Riyadh Governor launches the fourth edition of Asbar World Forum


Riyadh Gov. Prince Faisal bin Bandar sponsored on Monday the fourth session of the Asbar World Forum (AWF), held under the theme “Inspiring Saudi Arabia.”



The forum was attended by Saudi media minister, Turki Bin Abdullah Al-Shabanah, and other officials at the Fairmont Riyadh Hotel.

In a press statement following the ceremony, the governor highlighted the progress of the forum, its distinguished scientific output and its forward-looking methods, stressing the efforts of the AWF’s leaders.

Prince Faisal said:

“We are on the right path of science and technology. We look forward to the future and are moving in the right direction under the auspices of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.”

He thanked the AWF’s board of directors, and wished everyone success in their scientific and research outputs.

Al-Shabanah said:

“This important event comes in line with the major changes taking place in the Kingdom, mainly the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision and its important manifestations that have become a source of inspiration for the youth and all those involved in the achievements and production in various sectors, leading to prosperous living and growth in an economy based on innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship.”

He added:

“We have always talked in the Kingdom about change, transformation and accelerating our pace toward the future. What makes us proud today is that Vision 2030 rose from belief. The vision is an ambitious and bold one, based on three basic pillars: A vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious homeland.”

Al-Shabanah highlighted the role of the media in the growth of the knowledge economy and its pivotal role. He said: “We need to understand and embrace the media shift in the world, and the technology used to change media systems and production, focusing on the audience and their interaction with the media in the future.”

For his part, Fahad Al-Orabi Al-Harthi, president of the Asbar Center for Studies, Research and Communications, said in his speech that this was the fourth consecutive session of the AWF, with scientific and strategic partners from inside and outside the Kingdom, which are increasing every year.

He said:



“I am pleased to announce the completion of the forum’s first dictionary in Arabic for the basic terms of future studies. It is the first product of the Institute for the Future, which the forum announced the establishment of in the last session. The forum will include a special session to discuss this.
