Importance of Improving Social and Financial Performance In Corporations in Line with the Saudi Vision 2030

Why do customs or laws make it difficult to achieve this one principle? Does Saudi Vision 2030 address this issue adequately? Why or why not? Post your comment with the rationale or an example why the principle you listed is the most difficult to follow.

· Embed course material concepts, principles and theories, which require supporting citations along with at least one scholarly peer reviewed reference in supporting your answer unless the assignment calls for more. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Electronic Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.

· You need to reply to at least two peers’ discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peers’ replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.

· Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines.

Be sure to support your statements with logic and argument, citing all sources referenced. Post your initial response early, and check back often to continue the discussion. Be sure to respond to your peers’ posts as well.
