Leading global industry experts will converge in Riyadh this October to explore the trends, opportunities and challenges shaping the global investment landscape at the second Future Investment Initiative (FII) being hosted by Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF).

To be held from October 23 to 25 in capital Riyadh, the FII 2018 will bring together renowned visionaries with the power to shape the future of global investment.

FII was launched as a substantial international platform for expert-led debate between investors, innovators and governments as well as economic leaders, said the statement from PIF.

The inaugural event last year saw over 3,800 participants from more than 90 countries. The second edition aims to continue building active, global networks of influential actors to further explore the emerging industries that will shape the global economy and investment environment over the coming decades, said the statement.

Yasir Al Rumayyan, the managing director of PIF, said: “The PIF is developing into one of the world’s leading and most impactful sovereign wealth funds, and we look forward continuing to build strong strategic partnerships while also showcasing the opportunity for private sector participation as Saudi Arabia’s economy continues to expand and diversify.”

Last year’s event saw the launch of the Public Investment Fund Program (2018-2020), one of twelve Vision 2030 Vision Realisation Programs, which will act as a roadmap to help drive the economic diversification in the kingdom and transform Saudi Arabia into a global investment powerhouse, stated Al Rumayyan.

In addition, an expo featuring cutting edge technology also showcased Saudi Arabia’s future Giga Projects, a key element of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 economic program, he noted.
