CEO Message

peasThe Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has a prominent global stature, is a significant regional leader, and is an important global economic player. As such, the Kingdom is a key leader in the global energy market and an active member of the G20; consequently, it plays a pivotal and active role both regionally and internationally. Therefore, the Kingdom has established solid alliances and a network of strong international relations. These alliances and relations have been built throughout the history of the Kingdom, since the unification by the founder King Abdulaziz Al Saud (may Allah bless him).

Strategic partnerships are one of the most important pillars of building relationships, forging and developing alliances among countries; as they achieve mutual benefit, and contribute to deepening cooperation and common interest. Furthermore, strategic partnerships play a pivotal role in unifying bilateral positions between countries based on the compatibility of interests, whether economic, cultural, or political, which enhance their international presence and global standing.

Partnerships have been deeply rooted as an approach and a main principle adopted by the Kingdom since the era of the founder, King Abdulaziz Al Saud (may Allah bless him), who applied the principle of internal and external partnerships, when he united the different tribes throughout the Kingdom, and presented the Kingdom to the global community as a reliable strategic ally to the most important countries in the world and the region. Similarly, King Abdulaziz's sons (may Allah bless them), until the current era of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud have followed their father's footsteps and approach.

Today, due to the continuous developments and rapid changes at the regional and international levels, and in light of our ambitious vision 2030, this approach had to be strengthened and advanced as a main principle in the Kingdom’s international relations. As a result, the leadership in the Kingdom decided to establish SCISP in 2017 to be an example of the said approach, and a confirmation of the view that international strategic partnerships contribute to achieving the objectives of our 2030 Vision.
