Market Information

Under the leadership of Saudi’s new crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman, Saudi Arabia is undergoing structural reforms politically, economically and socially, which if successful, will transform the Kingdom towards a service economy post-oil.

These changes along with significant amounts of investment - estimated to soon be over US$1 trillion - will create vast amounts of opportunities for the most innovative and cutting-edge businesses in all sectors.

Vision 2030, a government plan to diversify the economy from its reliance on oil, has only just begun and with a young and increasingly well-educated population, together with its own sovereign wealth fund, the Kingdom has many favourable factors to become a leading service sector economy in the region.
