National Day reinforces loyalty and gratitude to Saudi Arabia’s leaders

On Saudi Arabia’s 92nd National Day, our loyalty and gratitude to a country that has given us so much to be proud of — and to visionary leaders whose determination and achievements will go down in history — are reinforced.

Today, the Kingdom is witnessing an unprecedented legislative reform that enables a prosperous present and paves the way for a remarkable future in which our ambitions and dreams are realized.

The country is moving at an accelerating rate, guided by an inspiring vision that is already achieving excellence in various fields.

I would like to extend my sincerest congratulations to King Salman, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and the noble Saudi people, on the 92nd National Day of Saudi Arabia.

This great day represents the anniversary of the unification of Saudi Arabia by the late founder, King Abdulaziz, after a long struggle that continued for more than 30 years, during which he established the rules and foundations of good governance in this great country — adhering to the Holy Qur’an and authentic Sunnah — and based the administration of the country’s affairs on the Shoura.

National Day is a time to remember the blessed beginnings of the foundation of a modern state, guided by the clear insights and wisdom of its late founder, followed by his righteous sons, the kings of this country, who have continued to walk in his footsteps. This country has continued on this right path during the era of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

It is a great occasion in which pride is renewed in a country that has given us so much and with a leadership that has achieved the remarkable, guided by wisdom, decisiveness, strong will, and hard work. Our country has established itself in a prominent global position and achieved remarkable scores in international ranks in various fields.

The progress we are witnessing today demonstrates the potential, creativity and determination of Saudi youth of both genders, guided by constant encouragement and support from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Legislative reform is one of the major pillars of national transformation and the means to achieve the targets of Vision 2030 in all aspects of life — economic, commercial, cultural, social, environmental, educational, and more. The past few years have witnessed numerous new regulations, and the amendment of many existing laws, supporting national development programs and strategies.

These historical legislative reforms have protected rights, established principles of justice and transparency, and enhanced the competitiveness of Saudi Arabia globally, leading the Kingdom to higher rankings in various regional and international performance indicators. The World Bank report for 2022 praises the Saudi economy, and confirms it to be one of the fastest-growing in the world, witnessing a rapid recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.

These indicators are clear evidence of the economic success of Vision 2030, which paves the way for many other achievements in other vital sectors.

The progress we are witnessing today demonstrates the potential, creativity and determination of Saudi youth of both genders, guided by constant encouragement and support from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

We pray to the Almighty Allah to protect this country, its leadership, and its people, and to perpetuate the blessings of security, safety and prosperity, and to celebrate this day with our nation and our leadership in glory and prosperity for many years to come.

Hanan Al-Ahmadi is the assistant speaker of the Saudi Shoura Council.
