Over 25 Agreements Worth More Than $2.93 Billion Signed on the Opening Day of Biban 2023
The MoU was one of more than 25 agreements launched alongside a range of investment initiatives, on the first day of Biban 2023. The event — taking place from March 9 to March 13, 2023, at the Riyadh Front Exhibition & Conference Center — is expected to attract over 105,000 participants, including entrepreneurs, SME owners, investors, policymakers, and other stakeholders from the Kingdom and beyond.
As part of the agreements signed, separate to the MoU with Huawei, eight banks and financing entities pledged more than $2.93 billion to support the Kingdom’s SME ecosystem.
In line with Vision 2030, the agreements will contribute to the diversification of the national economy, transforming the country into a world-class hub of commerce.
Sami Ibrahim Alhussaini, Governor of Monsha’at, said: “We are fully committed to bolstering the national economy and fulfilling the Kingdom’s potential. As part of this mission, we aim to create an affirming entrepreneurial environment conducive to investment and growth. We have made significant strides on this journey over the years, as seen with the Kingdom’s recent leap from 41st place — in 2018 — to second place, in 2022, on the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor’s ‘State of Entrepreneurship index’.”
He added: “Biban 2023 represents a fantastic opportunity for us to build on this progress and take more steps towards realizing the goals of Vision 2030. A unique platform fully geared towards the meaningful exchange of insights, networking and collaboration, Biban 23 will help to inspire innovation and effect lasting positive change within the Saudi and global entrepreneurship sector.”
