The Ministry of Commerce has launched an internationally benchmarked training program to enhance the leadership skills, capabilities, and knowledge of its executives and leaders from various government sectors, with a focus on international trade and e-commerce. This initiative is in partnership with Georgetown University in the United States.
The program involves 26 leaders from the trade ecosystem, including the Ministry of Economy and Planning, the Ministry of Justice, the Zakat, Tax, and Customs Authority, the Capital Market Authority, the Bureau of Experts at the Council of Ministers, and the Committee for Preparing Judicial Legislation.
Aimed at refining leadership, strategic planning, policy development, project management, and crisis communication skills, the program also prioritizes assessing and addressing the specific training needs of these leaders.
Founded in 1789, Georgetown University is a globally renowned institution in business, law, and international affairs, having produced numerous world leaders, ministers, diplomats, and Nobel laureates.
This initiative is part of the Ministry of Commerce's strategy to invest in human capital and competency enhancement, fostering a conducive commercial environment for growth. It aims to boost the Kingdom's regional and global competitiveness and drive a thriving and sustainable economy.
