Historical Background[edit]

Saudi Arabia’s first participation in the G20 meetings was in 2008 Washington summit. By then and as the world suffered from a global crisis, Saudi Arabia was the tenth largest sovereign wealth fund in the world and the second largest oil reserves. Initially, the Saudi entrance to the G20 was due to its economic importance as an effective pricing force in the energy market.[3]

G20 and Saudi Vision 2030[edit]

The Saudi Vision 2030 corresponds to the priorities of the G20, including achieving macroeconomic stability, sustainable development, women empowerment, enhanced human capital, and increased flow of trade and investment. Thus, Saudi Arabia has gained global confidence after announcing its vision.[3]
