A World Of Opportunities

The Saudi opportunity

Saudi Arabia is a global powerhouse. Already the largest economy in the Arab world and a member of G20, it is now poised to become one of the world’s most competitive nations as its ambitious development programme – to become the global capital of energy, thanks to its vast hydrocarbons reserves that make it the world’s biggest oil exporter; to act as a transport and logistics hub between east and west, because of its strategic location; and invest in knowledge-based industries, to enhance its role as an innovator – drives long-term, sustainable change.

The propellers for this transformation are record amounts of investment. New communications infrastructures and transport routes create a potential consumer base of more than 250 million, all within three hours’ reach; state-of-the-art industrial complexes producing petrochemicals and minerals that are vital for the global economy spawn a plethora of industries and create employment; and a commitment to greater business efficiency is attracting more foreign investment than ever before.
