The OPEC+ meeting on 27 April saw oil producers stick to agreements made

output as global demand recovers from the pandemic, bringing around 2.1m b/d back to the market in May-July, easing cutbacks to 5.8m b/d.

What you will learn:

  • On the fifth anniversary of the announcement of Vision 2030, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman made announcements on plans for the future of the Saudi economy. 
  • Regional cases of Covid-19 continue to rise, with several GCC countries reporting high numbers.
  • Further measures are being put in place to curb contagion, including an extension of the curfew in Kuwait until the end of Ramadan in mid-May and a ban on flights from India to the UAE and Oman.
