The HLPF 2023 was held from July 10 to 19 under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), to consolidate efforts for governments adopting joint initiatives and statements.

In this year’s edition, the forum aims to achieve a set of objectives, including clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, industry, innovation and infrastructure, sustainable cities and communities, and partnerships to achieve the goals.
The Kingdom has announced to host the most impactful World Expo ever in 2030 in Riyadh, and to provide construction and operational support for the pavilions of the developing countries, so that they can showcase their heritage and culture during the Expo.
