Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman Addresses World Economic Forum From The Desert

Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman found a novel way to work remotely on Thursday by addressing the World Economic Forum from a computer set up in the desert. The 35-year-old prince, who has a string of futuristic plans for the ultra-conservative kingdom, sat in an armchair with his monitor on a table next to a more traditional-looking row of tents. The stunt appeared to be an effort to promote the AlUla region where the prince set up his temporary office, and where Saudi rulers hope to build a tourist destination in line with MBS's 'Vision 2030' programme to end the kingdom's reliance on oil. On Monday, the World Economic Forum published a promotional piece by AlUla's chief executive - before the prince gave his speech three days later outlining $6trillion of investment opp...
