Sectoral and Economy-Wide Effects of Domestic Energy Price Reforms in Saudi Arabia

Sectoral and Economy-Wide Effects of Domestic Energy Price Reforms in Saudi Arabia

This paper simulates the sectoral and economy-wide consequences of deregulating energy prices in Saudi Arabia. Our analysis is based on KAPSARC’s general equilibrium energy model (KEMGE), a new hybrid computable general equilibrium model (CGE). The model examines the effects of full price deregulation, starting in 2019, on economic activity and revenue in the year 2030.
