He continued: “The Experience continues to be a huge driver of diverse Kingdom culture and the creative industry, influencing positive ideological shifts, shaping identities, stimulating innovation, forging meaningful relationships and collaborative endeavours, and fostering economic liberation, for example, allowing indigenous talent to display their creativity and exposing them to an unprecedented global audience via continental and global television, alongside live internet streaming.”
“Our numerous feedback mechanisms show that SMEs (small and medium scale enterprises) have been birthed in sectors as diverse as food, hospitality, clothing, memorabilia, security, technology, media and entertainment, facilities management, events management as well as logistics including aviation, ground transportation and local and international travel management,” he concluded.
