On February 12, Co-chair Ban Ki-moon had a bilateral meeting with Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman Saudi Arabia in Riyadh. During this occasion, they reviewed a number of issues of mutual concerns, and World Economic Forum President Børge Brende also joined the meeting.

Important agendas related to regional and international economic developments were discussed in addition to exploring opportunities for a partnership between the Kingdom and WEF in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.

This was their second time meeting after they met for the first time at the UN Headquarters in New York while Co-chair Ban Ki-moon served as the UN Secretary-General, upon which occasion they discussed improving civilian protection in Yemen after a UN report briefly blacklisted a Saudi-led coalition for killing children.
