Al-Meshari recently held a meeting with the Saudi ambassador to Venezuela, Saad Al-Saad, on ways of enhancing the economic and trade relations between Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. 

He raised the importance of developing trade and investment with Venezuela through the exchange of trade delegations, economic information about markets, production, and current investment opportunities that are available. 

The CSC was formed by royal decree in 1980, with the aim of observing the common interests of all 28 Saudi Chambers, as well as representing them on both the local and international stage. 

Having been appointed secretary-general in 2016, Al-Meshari has been tasked with carrying out CSC’s vision of assisting in the development of the national economy through the role of the private sector.

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have extended their condolences to the family and relatives of the late journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Press Agency reported early Monday.
King Salman expressed his deepest sympathy in a telephone call Sunday to Salah Jamal Khashoggi, the son of the 59-year-old journalist, who died in Istanbul early this month.
The crown prince also condoled with Salah Jamal Khashoggi by phone, the SPA said.
Khashoggi's son thanked the king and the crown prince, the report added. 

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir earlier said that the death of Khashoggi was the result of a “rogue operation” by people acting beyond the scope of their authority.
