JEF 2014: Growth Through the Youth

GCC member countries' national visions have emphasized the need for economic diversification and increased labor force participation of young nationals, and investment in the region's Youth to unlock the potential of both the private sector and the next generation of professionals is a policy priority for governments.

This year's Jeddah Economic Forum will explore 'Growth through Youth', addressing the challenges and opportunities surrounding sustainable job creation for young people, with the objective of facilitating regional growth through strategic and long-term investment in job creation across two key growth sectors: Tourism, and Transportation Infrastructure.
