Under the patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, third version of Future Investment Initiative (FII) to be held in Riyadh in October 2019
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 27 - 06 - 2019

Under the Patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and the chairmanship of HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, and Chairman of the Public Investment Fund (PIF), the PIF announced today the high level program for the third annual Future Investment Initiative (FII), which will take place from October 29th to 31st 2019 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
This year, FII will again bring together decision makers, leading investors and global experts to explore future economic trends and opportunities, shed light on the future of industries, and discuss how investment can continue to drive overall global prosperity and development.
Organized around the overall theme of ‘what is next for global business?' the event will focus on three key pillars:
. Sustainable future: Exploring new innovations and investment models that can support profit, people and planet
. Technology for good: Business and policy frameworks that can guide the future growth of the tech industry
. Advanced society: Cultural and organizational systems that can inspire humanity in the age of machines
Alongside the main program, FII will also host three summits, looking at how changes in business, entertainment and society are driving innovation and creating investment opportunities:
. Immersive work: How changes in technology, demography and business models are altering the nature of work
. Interactive entertainment: How innovations, globalization and consumer behaviors impact the worlds of sports, leisure and entertainment
. Interconnected society: How governments around the world are attempting to integrate intelligent systems, advanced mobility, new educational models and greater cultural awareness into their cities and communities
As part of FII's goal to build relationships and encourage in-depth discussion, the event will host twelve cross-sector taskforces, designed to explore emerging business and investment trends and to identify early-stage growth opportunities. These taskforces will cover social, energy, climate, technology, healthcare, data, transportation, food, tourism, sport, retail and youth related topics.
FII has proven to be a substantial international platform for expert-led debate between investors, innovators and governments as well as economic leaders since it was launched in 2017. Last year's edition of FII saw more than USD60 billion (SAR225 billion) worth of agreements announced over the three days of the event. These agreements included major investments across a range of sectors, including energy, housing, healthcare and ICT. FII 2018 attracted more than 3,500 participants from 88 countries, including representation from eight heads of state and more than 20 international ministers. In addition, more than 2.6 million viewers worldwide followed FII 2018 through the event's livestream.
Further updates on the 2019 program, partners and speakers will be announced over the coming months.
