Abstract

Vision 2030’s focus is to mainly move the Saudi economy away from its dependence on oil. Nonetheless, any plan so ambitious will undoubtedly have social – and potentially political – consequences. The degree of social change, of course, depends on the extent to which portions of the vision are implemented in practice – something which is being called into question after King Salman’s recent restoration, at the end of April, of financial allowances for civil servants and the military that were previously stripped.
