Saudi Arabia is participating in the United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development which will take place on July 9-19, 2018 in New York. The Ministry of Economy and Planning (MEP) will lead the Saudi delegation, with the participation of a number of government and private sector entities, in addition to charitable societies and associations' representatives.
"We look forward to our active participation by presenting Saudi Arabia's first Voluntary National Review on the progress made towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals," said H.E. Faisal Al Ibrahim, Vice Minister of Economy and Planning on the Kingdom's participation in this event. H.E. added "Saudi Vision 2030 and its various programs are aligned to a considerable extent with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are systematically progressing in achieving these goals in collaboration with the international community."
Held annually, the High-level Political Forum provides an opportunity for nations to share experiences and best practices towards achieving the SDGs. This year's theme "Transformation towards sustainable and resilient societies" focuses on six SDGs:
