Amos Hochstein, special envoy and coordinator for International Energy Affairs for the U.S. Department of State, expressed support for the renewable energy goals articulated by Saudi Vision 2030. Hochstein met with Saudi energy officials during a recent visit to Jeddah.
“In my opinion, if the Saudi government creates the regulatory environment and investment climate for utilization of wind and solar energy, the private sector in Saudi Arabia and all over the world will rush to invest,” Hochstein said.
Hochstein also prased the Saudi-U.S. bilateral relationship, especially in the energy sector.
“We’ve always had very close relations with the Saudi government and we will continue to work together in the future. The renewable energy sector in the US is one of the best in the world and our companies would be the best form of collaboration in this sector. I’m extremely optimistic that American companies would invest in Saudi Arabia once the sector is available for this.”
