Assistant Deputy Minister for International Cooperation at the Saudi Ministry of Finance Naif Al-Anezi affirmed the importance of enhancing efforts to develop joint Arab economic and social work.

The remarks came in a speech at the meeting of the Economic and Social Council of the Arab League on Saturday, to prepare for the upcoming summit in Bahrain next Thursday.
