Keys to the Kingdom – Doing Business in Saudi Arabia
With 80% of the Gulf Arab population, Saudi is the elephant in the room in any Middle East discussion. This seminar looks at business-winning and cost-effective delivery in this opaque yet lucrative market, as well as recent economic and societal developments through Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Program. AEI Saudi is the in-country partner of the UK Department for International Trade and helps over 200 companies annually with their Saudi journeys.
