Saudi Arabia, with over 32 million inhabitants, is one of the world’s highest-income economies, with the greatest oil reserves, and one of the top petroleum producers.  Foreign trade accounts for nearly 61% of its GDP. It is the 22nd largest exporter of goods and 21st largest importer in the world. Spanish companies can play a decisive role in the process to diversify the Saudi production model, as foreseen in the program Vision 2030, because the sectors identified as holding a priority are the same as those in which Spanish companies hold leading positions internationally. The country’s goal is to evolve towards an economy less dependent on oil, that is more diversified, open and competitive, where the private sector can act as the main driver of growth.
