Via ArabNews (h/t EuropeNews):

Several institutions from Saudi Arabia, Austria, other Arab countries and Europe have teamed together to organize a high-profile “Arab-European Young Leaders Forum.”

The first-of-its-kind event, involving young Arab and European leaders and professionals, is to be held to promote responsible leadership, mutual understanding and friendship.

The five-day event will begin on Nov. 23 in Vienna under the patronage and sponsorship of Austria's Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs.

Austrian Ambassador Johannes Wimmer said the forum will bring together young professionals aged 25 to 40 who will deliberate on finding viable solutions to the political, economic and social challenges of modern times.

Wimmer also gave an overview of the progressively growing Saudi-Austrian relations while welcoming the Kingdom's announcement for establishing the King Abdullah Center for Interfaith Dialogue in Vienna.
