Jeddah, March 17, 2014
Jeddah Economic Forum, which will start on Tuesday, hosts Facebook's co-founder, Chris Hughes, in a panel titled "Entrepreneurship: Challenges and Enablers" as a primary speaker. Chris Hughes' fortune is estimated to be around 100 million US dollars. This young man was only a teenager when he co-founded Facebook, working part-time for four years, assisting Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg from their Harvard dormitory room. Chris was also Facebook's spokesperson, and became a wealthy person when he was only 23 years old.
"Growth through the youth" is the logo of the 14th edition of Jeddah Economic Forum (JEF 2014). The forum will discuss ways to create 15 million jobs in Saudi Arabia and some Arab countries such as UAE, Egypt and Qatar with the help of economic policies that would rein in unemployment in the region.
