JEDDAH — The Cabinet, chaired by Crown Prince and Prime Minister Mohammed Bin Salman on Tuesday at Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah, endorsed the Kingdom’s efforts to boost economic cooperation with various countries, by stimulating the public and private sectors and continuing the exchange of visits among businesspeople.

The Cabinet commended the outcome of the Saudi-Japanese Vision 2030 meeting, which resulted in the signing of 26 memorandums and agreements in vital economic sectors, as well as the outcome of the Saudi-Turkish Investment Forum, which resulted in the signing of nine memorandums of understanding in several fields.

The Crown Prince briefed the Cabinet on the content of the two letters that Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman sent to the presidents of South Africa and Central Africa, and on the outcome of his official talks with the president of Turkiye and the prime minister of Japan, during which Saudi relations with these two countries were reviewed, and views on various regional and international issues were exchanged.

In a statement to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) following the session, Minister of Media Salman Bin Yousef Al-Dosari said that the Cabinet also discussed the 18th Consultative Meeting of the leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and the Gulf-Central Asia Summit, which will take place in Jeddah on July 19, 2023, and wished officials taking part in it success in strengthening solidarity and cooperation.
