Our digital lives are continuously changing; new technologies, platforms, and approaches are adopted at a significant rate by society. Incumbent banks generally struggle to keep abreast of these changes - often seen as the dinosaurs of industry. My mission is to change that; to help banks realize their digital ambitions. Avoiding the "pretty wrapper" approach, preferably helping banks evolve their entire landscape digitally while keeping the lights on.

To ensure the realisation of Saudi Arabia's vision for 2030, the government is preparing to launch a group of executive programs that will have a significant impact on implementation.”



Saudi Arabia's investment in the Metaverse is an important part of the Vision 2030 National Transformation Program, which seeks to enable technological innovation within the country.

Minister responsible: His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince and Prime Minister

Vision 2030 is built around three primary themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy, and an ambitious nation. These three elements are interdependent and equally important to the future of Saudi Arabia.

  • To rank three Saudi cities in top-ranked 100 cities in the world
  • Unemployment rate to be reduce from 7% from 11.6%
  • SMEs is estimated to account for 35% of GDP from existing contribution of 20% and private sector’s contribution form 40% to 65% of GDP
  • To become one of the 15 largest economies in the world from the current position of 19th largest economy in the world
  • Foster Metaverse Innovation and Economic Contribution
  • Cultivate Metaverse Talent Through Education and Training
  • Develop Metaverse Use-cases and Applications in Government
  • The kingdom will invest more than $64 billion in total.
  • The Kingdom has made an enormous investment in the metaverse: The $1 billion funding of XVRS is part of a larger $64 billion in future technologies which is expected to accelerate the country’s digital transformation.

Why Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has committed $1 billion in investment capital to the virtual reality space over 10 years, and this commitment is expected to quicken the country’s digital transformation. Coupled with young demographics and a higher-than-average rate of urbanisation, more citizens are likely to adopt VR technology than in other developed nations.


Some Key highlights:

  • The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has made moves to boost its gaming industry in recent years by hosting gaming festivals and establishing a community of gamers.
  • XVRS will be a digital twin metaverse where visitors to NEOM can have simultaneous presence both physically and virtually as avatars or holograms.
  • The Saudi government has invested heavily in technology, which has drawn the interest of companies investing in virtual-world technologies.
  • The Saudi Arabian oil company Aramco announced it would invest $1 billion in a venture capital firm that will invest in companies with futuristic technology, including those working on metaverse and blockchains.
  • In 2024, the metaverse is expected to generate over $800 billion in revenue, which will present great opportunities for the Middle East as well as other countries.



The UAE has already embraced the Metaverse concept, with several companies beginning to develop virtual reality networks in which users can make investments, buy and sell goods, conduct business, create and trade NFTs, purchase virtual property and play games.


The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has one of the world's youngest populations, and the country aims to become a global technology hub. The Saudi community is digitally savvy, and with metaverse technology still in early stages of development, the potential for immersive experiences and brands are exponential.


KSA's rapid development shows that it is implementing blockchain technology to its infrastructure, governments, and public services. The city is a pioneer in virtual development, aiming to create a grand vision like the Metaverse.

We'd like to acknowledge Trescon for all the great efforts and structured organization with thorough follow ups and accommodation.
