President Bola Tinubu Attends 2024 Special World Economic Forum in Riyadh

President Bola Tinubu embarked on the second leg of his two-nation tour, arriving in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, on Friday to participate in the 2024 Special World Economic Forum on Global Collaboration, Growth, and Energy for Development. This follows his engagements in The Hague, Netherlands, since Wednesday.

With over 1,000 leaders from business, government, and academia expected to attend from more than 90 countries, the high-level forum in Riyadh is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday. Discussions will focus on actions taken since the inaugural Growth Summit held in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2023.

President Tinubu’s spokesperson, Mr. Ajuri Ngelale, revealed that Tinubu and his entourage will seize the opportunity to discuss his renewed hope agenda for Nigeria during the gathering.

The forum in Riyadh will address pressing global challenges across three main themes: revitalizing global collaboration, fostering inclusive growth, and catalyzing action on energy for development. The event aims to bridge the growing North-South divide exacerbated by emerging economic policies, the energy transition, and geopolitical shocks, according to the SWEF concept note.
