(INTELLIHUB) — The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman visited several American ex-presidents during his weeks-long stay in the U.S. where the Eastern leader pushed his “Saudi Vision 2030.”
The prince, a.k.a. MBS, traveled from the White House to other destinations across the country where he offered those he spoke with insight into his vision which vows to make the Saudi economy less reliant on oil while throwing a bone to the Saudi people by allowing them to diversify more freely in society.
During his visit to the U.S. the crown prince and his entourage met with former U.S. Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush Sr., and George W. Bush Jr, along with several influential business moguls and deep state figureheads such as Rupert Merdoch.
An excerpt from the MBS-backed plan reads: “We are confident about the Kingdom’s future. With all the blessings Allah has bestowed on our nation, we cannot help but be optimistic about the decades ahead. We ponder what lies over the horizon rather than worrying about what could be lost.”
“We are determined to reinforce and diversify the capabilities of our economy, turning our key strengths into enabling tools for a fully diversified future. As such, we will transform Aramco from an oil producing company into a global industrial conglomerate. We will transform the Public Investment Fund into the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund. We will encourage our major corporations to expand across borders and take their rightful place in global markets. As we continue to give our army the best possible machinery and equipment, we plan to manufacture half of our military needs within the Kingdom to create more job opportunities for citizens and keep more resources in our country.”
MBS booked the entire Four Seasons Beverly Hills hotel in L.A. for his visit.
