JEF 2014: Growth Through the Youth

The Jeddah Economic Forum (JEF) 2016 focused on public private partnerships (PPP) with a view to privatization in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Historically an oil-based economy, the Kingdom now seeks to diversify, and is keen on involving private stakeholders. Such a shift introduces lucrative commercial possibilities, but it also presents potential challenges. Bringing together high ranking government officials, international businesses, policy makers and global experts, JEF 2016 is a unique forum to discuss and debate solutions to overcome these challenges, explore business opportunities, and assess economic benefits offered by the evolving landscape of the Kingdom


The Jeddah Economic Forum (JEF), inaugurated in 2000 AD, has become a leading hub for economists and businessmen from around the globe. Known as the "Davos of the Middle East", and one of the most important global events.

The Forum, proudly organized by the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is an international platform for discussions and the exchange of ideas among leading decision makers which include, heads of states, politicians, businessmen, and public figures- Annually, the delegates, representing over 60 countries across six continents, convene to address key issues facing our world today.
