Top Most Powerful Arabs in Saudi Arabia 2023

Gulf Business's power list for this year celebrates Arab leaders who are making significant contributions to the growth and development of various sectors such as industry, sports, entertainment, and culture across the region and beyond.

Over the past year, the Arab world has seen remarkable achievements, including the development of large-scale infrastructure projects, the hosting of two consecutive UN Climate Change Conferences, and a surge in Middle East IPOs that raised over $18bn. Despite global economic challenges and financial market volatility, the Gulf region has remained relatively insulated, with strong real GDP growth projected for 2023, driven by investments in technology, sustainability, manufacturing, and tourism.

The upcoming power list recognizes Arab leaders who have contributed to this growth, including prominent figures from business, sports, entertainment, culture, and industry across the region and beyond.
