Saudi Arabia has announced that it will launch a national investment strategy next year, according to a state media report.

On Saturday, Saudi Minister of Investment Khalid Al-Falih revealed in Riyadh at a media briefing ahead of the Group of 20 (G20) Leaders' Summit that the strategy grants full ownership rights to Saudi and foreign investors, Xinhua news agency quoted the report as saying.

Despite a global pandemic, Saudi Arabia was not distracted from its strategy and Vision 2030, he said.

"In fact, we doubled down on it. We accelerated our reforms. We continued to diversify our economy, and commit our resources to make sure that Vision 2030 is not derailed by the Covid-19," the Minister added.

The strategy will cover different sectors, including tourism, culture, sports, industries, Artificial Intelligence, technologies and health.
