The Middle East Association (MEA) will be leading a multi-sector trade mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 7th to 17th May 2016 which will visit Jeddah, the Eastern Province and Riyadh.


About the mission:

  • The mission will visit all three main centres, however a key feature of MEA Missions to Saudi Arabia, is the built-in flexibility offered to participants who may vary their own itinerary to meet individual company objectives.
  • Feedback from mission participants consistently commends the MEA mission format as an effective vehicle for accessing the Saudi market place.


Benefits of the mission:

  • The mission will be led by David Lloyd, Senior Consultant at the Association. He has extensive experience of the Saudi market and this will be the 20th mission he has led to the Kingdom.
  • You will receive assistance in obtaining your Saudi Business Visit Visa.
  • There will be a mission brochure which will advertise your product/service to potential contacts in all three centres.
  • Working breakfasts will take place in all three centres and a programme of meetings arranged.


Who is the mission for:

  • This mission will be multi-sector and open to all; but sectors of particular interest to the Saudis include education and training; healthcare; transportation; mining; renewable energy and infrastructure.
  • Mission participants must be British exporters of goods or services. They may be a UK registered subsidiary of a foreign company, provided they are actively contributing to the British economy.


Market information:

  • The Saudi economy is growing at about 3.5% pa and is the largest in the MENA Region. Business opportunities abound.
  • UK-Saudi bilateral trade is worth about £8bn
  • Transport and infrastructure projects with focus on rail and air offer huge business opportunities and British companies are steadily increasing their presence. The Riyadh metro project is well under way. Education and training, healthcare, water management including desalination and sources of renewable energy and mining are all sectors continuing to grow apace where there is enormous scope for UK products, services and expertise.
  • The potential of the Saudi market for British goods and services and the high regard in which the quality of British products is held, cannot be overstated.
