The rules of the game were simple: Europe and America were considered the best, while the Middle East and other parts of the world were often labeled as underdeveloped. However, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been defying these rules, demonstrating that it is more than capable of competing with the best in the world. In recent years, the nation has made remarkable progress, challenging preconceived notions and achieving significant advancements across various domains.
Previously, Saudi Arabia relied heavily on foreign experts to undertake its ambitious mega projects. But that paradigm has shifted, as the country has cultivated its own pool of talented professionals. These individuals have received top-tier education and are now being given opportunities to contribute to the country’s growth. Whether they are doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs, or working in other capacities, they are now competing at a global level, playing a crucial role in building the nation with their own hands.
The recent progress made by Saudi Arabia is a testament to the efforts and accomplishments of these professionals in their respective fields. The country’s growth and development are evident in numerous areas, including infrastructure, education, quality of life, and the economy. The Kingdom has proven itself to be among the strongest nations, and the potential for further advancement remains vast.
As Saudis, we are thrilled to be part of this transformative journey toward a brighter future, and we are motivated to contribute in any way we can.
As a citizen, I take immense pride in stating that Saudi Arabia’s human resources are its strongest asset, with untapped potential waiting to be explored. Like many others, I have spent years living, studying and working abroad, achieving great success. However, with the ongoing progress and development in my own country, I am confident that even better opportunities lie within Saudi Arabia. The recent achievements of the nation exemplify its growth and development, and I am excited to be part of this journey.
Reflecting on Saudi Arabia’s recent progress, one cannot help but feel motivated and inspired by the tremendous growth and development that has transpired. As parents, we are filled with pride and happiness when we witness our children, who were born and raised in Western countries, proudly embracing their Saudi heritage and remaining connected to their roots.
Saudi Arabia has shattered expectations and is now competing on the global stage in all areas — a feat that was once deemed impossible. This shows that with hard work, dedication, and a strong vision, anything can be achieved. It is truly inspiring to witness our children taking pride in their culture and witnessing their country’s rise in the international arena.
We firmly believe that Saudi Arabia’s human resources are its most potent tool, and with continued progress, the country is on its way to securing a prominent position among the world’s strongest nations. As Saudis, we are thrilled to be part of this transformative journey toward a brighter future, and we are motivated to contribute in any way we can.
