In an interview with Al-Arabiya, Muhammad Al-Omran, a member of the Saudi Economic Association, said that the study of the 2022 budget gave him hope for the Kingdom’s ability to weather various economic storms.
He stressed the necessity of being prepared for what the world’s financial markets are expecting, such as the release of the monetary policies that the world’s leading central banks will pursue in the coming months.
