PRINCE KHALED ON… CHANGE IN SAUDI ARA­BIA

CEO Middle East - - BUSINESS -

“My sis­ter was one of the first to drive, she’s driv­ing all over the place. But life in gen­eral is dif­fer­ent, it’s much more open, it’s much more what Saudi Ara­bia really is, and how the Saudi peo­ple really are. Open, no re­stric­tions on abayas or clothes – sure enough you have to be mod­est, but the abayas don’t have to be there. There’s a real change in Saudi Ara­bia right now. Some peo­ple want to wear the abaya, they have a cul­ture that they want to hold on to, which they love, and some peo­ple don’t, but there’s no wag­ging the fin­ger. It’s a really open en­vi­ron­ment right now, it has trans­formed so much.”
