The Education & Training Evaluation Commission (ETEC) was established in 2017 pursuant to the Council of Ministers’ decree No. 94 as a legal entity with financial and administrative autonomy, reporting directly to the Prime Minister. ETEC’s new statute was issued in 2019 pursuant to the Council of Ministers’ decree No. 108 in a manner that upholds its mission as a specialized entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in evaluating, assessing, and accrediting qualifications in the fields of education and training in the public and private sectors to enhance their quality and efficiency and to increase their contribution to serving the economy and national development in line with Saudi Vision 2030.
The Group of Twenty, or the G20, is the premier forum for international economic cooperation. The G20 brings together the leaders of both developed and developing countries from every continent.
Collectively, G20 members represent around 80% of the world’s economic output, two-thirds of global population and three-quarters of international trade. Throughout the year, representatives from G20 countries gather to discuss financial and socioeconomic issues.
