During his visit with Apple execs, Salman discussed developing apps in Saudi Arabia as well as creating new educational content in the Arabic language. They also discussed job opportunities that would allow Saudi youth to get training at Apple HQ.
Salman said he wants to shift Saudi Arabia from a country that invests extensively in oil and fossil fuels to one that innovates in markets like technology and renewable energy.
