On the occasion of the Kingdom's Social Responsibility Day, which falls on 23 March, His Excellency said that the achievements of social responsibility reflect the support and interest of the wise leadership, may God protect them, the integration with the private sector, and enhancing its participation in national development, pointing out that the most prominent of these efforts include issuing a standard for social responsibility under the name of the corporate guide, and launching the national platform for social responsibility, which enabled the private sector to contribute, as the value of corporate contributions exceeded one billion riyals less than a year since the launch of the platform.
