The second episode of ‘Kingdom Dialogue’, an online forum where Saudi citizens can take up issues and concerns with officials, will take place on September 15, according to the parent company of Google.
Next Saturday’s episode of the dialogue, which is conducted through YouTube, will see the president of the Saudi Anti-Corruption Commission, Mohammad Bin Abdullah Al Sharif, fielding queries from the public.
The first episode of the dialogue, which was launched by the King Abdul Aziz Centre for National Dialogue (KACND) and Google, was held earlier this year and saw the minister of education, Prince Faisal Bin Abdullah, addressing issues raised by citizens.
The initiative utilises technologies provided by Google and YouTube.
