Saudi Arabia webinar: Leveraging the crisis to build local strengthAugust 6, 2020
The Energy Year's Saudi Arabia webinar examined local content, digitalisation and the business relationship with national champion Saudi Aramco. The event was sponsored by Schlumberger and INMA Steel.
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and oil price collapse crisis – unprecedented in scope and intensity – Saudi Arabia has taken various steps to restore confidence and balance to global oil markets and strengthen collaborations with key stakeholders of the global energy industry.
In spite of these uncertain times, Saudi Arabia holding the presidency of the G20 for the first time in 2020 is an important milestone confirming the kingdom’s fundamental role in promoting collective efforts to emerge from the current downturn into a resilient, sustainable future.
