The deputy crown prince's visit to California will include meetings with executives in Silicon Valley, the home of the world's tech giants.

Several Saudi sources expect a number of tech deals to be announced between the kingdom and Silicon Valley companies during Prince Mohammed’s visit.

According to analysts speaking to Al Arabiya News Channel, Prince Mohammed’s meetings will aim to enhance ties with Silicon Valley and create new projects to be implemented in the kingdom.


These meetings also aim to establish a high-tech sector to achieve the aims of a diverse economy, as sought by Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

The deputy crown prince's visit to California will last for four days and he will head to this third stop, New York, on Tuesday, where he is scheduled to meet with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday.
