International Minerals Diplomacy: A Fireside Conversation with Bob Wilt, CEO of Ma’aden

June 12, 2024 • 9:00 – 9:45 am EDT

Vision 2030 has set the agenda for Saudi Arabia’s economic diversification, with the mineral economy being a key pillar in that strategy. Accordingly, Saudi Arabia is making strategic investments in the mining sector, both domestically and globally. As the world is charting a path to a larger and more diversified supply chain for critical minerals, what strategic opportunities does engagement from the Middle East create for resource rich countries and for the U.S.-Saudi partnership?   

Please join the CSIS Project on Critical Minerals Security for a conversation on U.S.-Saudi Arabia minerals diplomacy and Saudi’s Vision 2030. Bob Wilt, CEO of Ma’aden, will join Gracelin Baskaran, Director of the Project on Critical Minerals Security, to discuss this and more. 

This event is made possible by general funding to CSIS and the CSIS Project on Critical Minerals Security.
