​​King Salman orders extension of Citizens Account Program

Saudi Arabia: King Salman has ordered the extension of the Citizens Account Program and provision of extra support to its beneficiaries for a full year, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Monday.

The decision, made after recommendations from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, is expected to ease the financial burden on the most vulnerable in Saudi society amid a changing economic landscape, the report said.

The additional support is itself an extension of a previous directive issued by the king in July 2022.

The Citizens Account Program was established to protect Saudi families from the impact of economic reforms.
