calendar 9/23/2017 12:00 PM


The 87th anniversary of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia comes to commemorate the determination of the men who were led by the founder King Abdulaziz bin Abdulrahman Al-Faisal Al Saud, may God bless him and grant him peace, to be then succeeded by his dutiful sons, who have built the building blocks of the Kingdom, one after the other since its establishment with the help of God Almighty, to affirm the everlasting glory of this blessed land, governed by the Quran, cherishing the service of the Two Holy Mosques, leading the world' various aspects of progress and honoring its noble kings who went to great lengths and took great pains for the advancement of the country and the people. 

  The successive wise visions led by the rulers of this country, with the solidarity of the honorable people, have played a role in achieving progress in the administrative, economic, political, military and social fields. The country has transformed into an institutional civil state with advanced infrastructure envied by many countries. The Lord's grant with the emergence of oil has contributed since then in achieving these wise visions and accelerating the growth of the Kingdom.


Those who follow what has been achieved during the eighty-seven years of success, would spot the permanent renewal and affluence culminating in the era of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the human element behind any realizable achievements. They would also spot it in the vision of His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, Crown Prince and Minister of Defense and Aviation, in his efforts to support the National Transformation Program and the blessed Saudi Vision 2030, towards transforming the country from a fully oil-dependent state into one with diverse investment opportunities, whose economy is moving towards productivity, empowering young people and enhancing their aspirations to reach a privileged stage for our country, to be soon seen and delivered to our next generations.

These lofty and strong visions towards building a strong economy based on solid sources of income have contributed in shaping the Saudi export development thought through the Saudi Export Development Authority, which, according to prudent and honorable guidance, shall promote an economy of diversified sources of income with non-oil exports a key factor in its inputs. Therefore, three major initiatives were identified for "Saudi Exports" of the initiatives specified for the Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources within the National Transformation Program 2020, namely: advocating the export ecosystem efficiency, building Saudi enterprises' export capacities and promoting Saudi exporters and products and creating export opportunities for them. We will work with our partners in the government and the private sector to achieve the vision of our leader - may God protect him - by all possible means.

 On the 87th anniversary of our country, we renew our pledge of allegiance, obedience and loyalty and pray to God Almighty to preserve this blessed land, our father the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and his Crown Prince, His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to grant victory to the soldiers defending the our borders, to render this country victorious and strong under the banner of glorious monotheism, to preserve the people of Saudi Arabia and grant them security, safety, success and well-being at all levels. For He is, glory be to Him, over all things competent.
