RIYADH — Minister of Media and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the General Authority of Media Regulation (GAMR) Salman Al-Dosari launched on Monday the strategy and identity of the authority following the decision of the Council of Ministers, approving the organization of GAMR.

Through its new strategy, the authority seeks to lead the media sector in the Kingdom towards its pioneering role at the regional and international levels, as well as to raise its investment attractiveness and enhance the efficiency of its Saudi staff, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The strategy aims to raise the media sector’s contributions to the gross domestic product (GDP) to reach SR47 billion by 2030, based on the pivotal role of the sector, which is considered as rich in opportunities that can be seized to diversify the national economy and increase the non-oil GDP in the Kingdom.
