A number of Saudi ministries have partnered up with Google in order to launch a set of new initiatives that look to help improve the country’s economic strategy and digital transformation, with a focus on helping to improve the skills of Saudi women within the digital field.
Google has also iterated that the initiatives will focus on Saudi Arabia, and the MENA region, and will help to improve the economy, especially with the global economic downturn amid the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the programs is entitled, “Grow Stronger with Google,” which will provide local businesses and the unemployed with a wide-ranging list of digital tools, training opportunities, and grants. Specifically to Saudi Arabia, Google will be putting these initiatives in place to help the kingdom’s retail, tech, and tourism sectors.
