Share

A high-level delegation from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is set to participate in the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting 2023 in Davos, Switzerland, to enhance international cooperation and design joint solutions to today’s geopolitical, social, economic, and human development challenges.

Returning to its regular winter format after the first summer Forum was hosted in May 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Davos session will run between 16-20 January under the theme of “Cooperation in a Fragmented World”.

Reflecting the Kingdom’s balanced approach to geopolitical bridging between all nations and regions to reduce near-term risks while driving multilateral reform, Saudi Arabia’s high-level delegation, led by His Highness Prince Faisal bin Farhan Al Saud, Minister of Foreign Affairs, includes:

  • Her Royal Highness Princess Reema bint Bandar Al Saud, Ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to the United States of America
  • His Excellency Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Climate Affairs Envoy
  • His Excellency Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al-Falih, Minister of Investment
  • His Excellency Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Jadaan, Minister of Finance
  • His Excellency Abdullah bin Amer Alswaha, Minister of Communications and Information Technology
  • His Excellency Bandar bin Ibrahim Alkhorayef, Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources
  • His Excellency Faisal bin Fadhil Alibrahim, Minister of Economy and Planning
  • His Excellency Fahd bin Abdulmohsen Al-Rasheed, CEO of the Royal Commission ‎for Riyadh City

During their participation at WEF23, the delegation will outline progress achieved under Saudi Vision 2030, since the transformation program was launched in 2016 by His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Crown Prince, Prime Minister and Chairman of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, to build a vibrant, diversified economy that is open to collaboration with the world.

The Saudi delegation will highlight the need to invest in transformative solutions to urgent transnational challenges, fortify the resilience and connectivity of critical trade and supply chains, and emphasize the importance of inclusive energy security for all.

With Saudi Arabia emerging as the fastest growing G20 economy in 2022 with GDP projected to grow 8.5 percent, the Kingdom’s delegation to WEF will discuss how the country addressed challenges posed by the pandemic and share insights into the solutions that helped maintain a robust performance in the face of rising global pressures.

Major Landowner Federations to Support AMR Against Nordic Mining ASA (NOM) in the Norwegian Supreme Court27.1.2023 12:59:00 EET | Press release

Key landowner federations declare 3rd party intervention in support of Arctic Mineral Resources’ appeal to the Supreme Court in the case against Nordic Rutile AS (NRU), a wholly owned subsidiary of Nordic Mining ASA (NOM). Arnold Rørholt, lawyer and AMR’s Chairman, welcomes the 3rd party intervention in favour of AMR: “The intervention will ensure that the Supreme Court, as opposed to the courts of lower instance, appreciates the principal nature of the case and the Constitutional issues underpinning it, and interprets the Mineral Act in light of these – to the favour of AMR.” “The Western part of the Engebø garnet and rutile province contains around half of the proven reserves in the Engebø deposit, as well as a majority of inferred resources and will support a highly profitable 50 years plus fully underground mining project without a need for deposits on land or in the sea” continues Rørholt. Arctic Mineral Resources (AMR) and the federations argue that the two mineral categories – o

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 09:00:00 EET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
