SAUDI ARABIA IS TRANSFORMING INTO THE EPICENTRE OF TECH

Technological transformation is now emblematic of Saudi. 

Shifting away from oil as the principal economic resource in favour of becoming a regional tech hub is very much a definitive objective for Saudi’s Vision 2030. 

Deemed the new Silicon Valley of the Middle East, we are witnessing one of the most significant socio-cultural shifts ever seen. 

LEAP is a manifestation of this.

GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT

A key driving force behind LEAP is KSA’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. Offering heavyweight multilateral government support towards the ambitions for LEAP that will serve to diversify Saudi’s economy by:

  • Growth within the ICT sector by 50%
  • An increased GDP contribution by SR 50 billion over five years by the ICT sector
  • Supporting tech localisation efforts by raising a Saudisation workforce to 50% by 2021
  • Attracting foreign investment
  • The empowerment and participation of women
