Chris Innes-Hopkins, UK executive director, Saudi British Joint Business Council
Keith Dagleish, vice president commercial, Wood
A representative from Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA)
Saudi Arabia is the largest economy in the Arab world. It accounts for 25% of the Arab world’s overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Traditionally seen as an oil-based economy, Saudi Arabia holds the title as the world's largest producer and exporter of total petroleum liquids and the country's national corporation.

With a growing diversification within the Saudi economy and a massive government investment in transport, infrastructure, healthcare, education and energy there are multi-sector opportunities for UK businesses exporting to Saudi Arabia. 

Our speakers will advise how SMEs can best grow their business and access local supply chains.

Chris Innes-Hopkins of the Saudi British Joint Business Council will outline major multi-sector opportunities through Vision 2030, discuss how to win and keep business in this country covering cultural aspects and dispel misconceptions.

North-east Scotland’s Wood have recently been hired to support a Saudi Aramco 'mega project' and have worked with them for more than 30 years. Keith Dagleish, vice president of commercial, will share his knowledge and give key considerations for companies looking trade in Saudi Arabia. Through his presentation, Keith will cover off the marketing and exporting services available to UK companies along with highlighting day to day administration to expect when conducting business.

The Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority is a central agency for inward investment in Saudi Arabia and they will discuss why you should invest here and the incentives on offer.
