Everything just might not be that bleak after all when it comes to the future – for Saudi youth at least.
A new global study shows that Saudi youth are amongst the most optimistic in the world
The world’s first Global Optimism Outlook Survey – which was conducted by YouGov – revealed that Saudis are the most optimistic population in both the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and the world.
The study commissioned by Dubai’s Expo 2020 recently found that people in the kingdom make up one of the world’s most optimistic populations.
According to the findings, 61 percent of the Saudi public identified themselves as optimists – a number that is five percent higher than the global average – while 68 percent said they have a bright outlook on their own future.
