He added: “The hosting of Expo 2030 coincides with the culmination of the goals and plans of Saudi Vision 2030, making it a fantastic opportunity to share the lessons learned from the unprecedented transformation journey.”

Riyadh, as the capital of a strategically important country, serves as a vital bridge connecting continents, attracting international events, global investments, and visitors. It serves as a gateway to the world.
