100% YES. Saudi Arabia is also very rich in History, if they will only bend a little some rules, Tourism will be a big business.

With young population + political stability, the answer is that Saudi Arabia “may” have brilliant future.
With young population + political stability + modern education + just legal system, the answer is that Saudi Arabia “will” have brilliant future.

it's a difficult question to answer since "promising future' is not well defined in this question. hence the trouble.

Saudi Arabia can be the wealthiest country in the world if it wants to.

i think yes, the potential is there...............but will the world allow us a local super power ?
October 30th, 2007, 05:22 PM
yes it will, but it needs some improvements (u know what i'm talking about)
I didn't want to change the topic but i couldn't find a thread to ask questions about KSA so i'll just ask here: how tall is the kingdom tower/riyadh exactly?

Saudi Arabia in simple terms has probably the most promising future potential regarding development than by far most of the middel eastern countres, location, space, industrial fatige, and a large amrket make it highly promising!
my family on a personal note are in the communications industry, so i can give you tens of examples the saudis can invest in most of which either have or are being considerd but i will restrict my self to the communications industry as it is one where my family has been engaged in for many years.
thier is this new thing called fiber-optics (old in the world new in ME) i belive as far as i could remember thier is only one cabel either being built or built between jiddah and dbai, and basicaly what this cabel is, is it transfers collosol amounts of information generally used by the financial sector at extreemly high speed making it highly desirabel for forigen investors and locals alike, it is estimated that saudi arabia, with its geographical location is the only country that has the potential to establish a new global interlink of fiber optic cabels (can you see the potential here) in botht the high communications/ and telecomunications industry linking china, india with europe and potentially africa with fiber optic cabels passing through saudi and dubai we are talking of atleast three cities in saudi alone benefitin dammam riyadh and khobar, in what potentaily will be an essential industry in the future, we are talking about 100's(no exaguration) of billions of dollars worth.
citis can be planned to accomidate these kind of facilities or even hubs by companies transfering data.
this is high-tech i can understand but the beauty of it is that it fits very well with a country that is starting, it needs alot of space and a stratigic geographic location which only saudi benefits from this is only one scenario in a sea of untapped potentials in the kingdom.

Sure it does. More investment is needed for that especially in the science and industry sector. Saudis have hundreds of billions of dollars invested in the first-world countries. They need to invest more in their country because that's where they live and that's where their future lies. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to make others developed while remained less developed.

I honestly think that the biggest hindrances to Saudi Arabia's future comes from its government. If Saudi Arabia sizes down its massive royal family bankrolls, standardizes its legal system (instead of the huge leeway individual qazis are now given), and properly educates its people, then it will have a good future. However, I don't see a codified legal system and smaller Royal bankroll as being too probable in the future. As for education, I fear that the Saudis will go down the path of other countries in the region and give its citizens high paying civil service jobs in return for nothing. I know there are new universities sprouting up, but a degree means nothing if you don't do something constructive with it.
Oil money is a blessing, but its also a curse which makes people lazy (trust me, as a former expat who used to live in Taif, I can tell you that almost every non-khaliji thinks Saudis are the laziest people in the world). If the Saudis can properly utilize their money, then a good future is in store - that means no more enormous airports, useless stadia, and lavish palaces. If the Saudis don't learn from their own mistakes and extravagance, then all will be lost and Saudi grandchildren can look forward to only owning camels and date palms. So really, the fate of Saudi Arabia is in the hands of its royals, so we must see how they respond.
