Government Regulations Assistance for Companies Expanding in Saudi Arabia

As a nation in the midst of a transformation from an oil-reliant economy to a productivity-based market, Saudi Arabia is undergoing extensive socioeconomic change. Through its National Transformation Program 2020 and Vision 2030 initiatives, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is executing plans to increase national productivity, stimulate economic and social growth and improve every government sector. The nation is also working to develop job opportunities, improve education, entertainment and energy, diversify business and create better social conditions.

This transformation opens opportunities for foreign companies to expand their reach and make meaningful connections with Saudi businesses. Whether you have an established brand in Saudi Arabia or you are looking to begin, there is a better way to forward your business. Businesses need to build trust and develop respectful relationships by entering the market with an in-depth understanding of how these new government policies affect and inform business policies and dealings. Even more importantly, you need to align your interests and business goals with Saudi Arabia's vision of its own future.

Because the Saudi Arabian business world is so complex, challenging and different from other markets, working with an advisory firm with an in-depth knowledge of the nation will give you the edge you need to succeed — and that's where The Quincy Group can help you.

Why Government Affairs Services Are Essential to Succeeding in Business in Saudi Arabia

When you work with our business development and government relations team to gain policy advice and business expertise specific to Saudi Arabia, your company gains access to our close connections, experience and intimate knowledge of the Kingdom, including its government, markets, and culture. As a country where culture, government and business are inextricably tied, Saudi Arabia can be a challenge for foreign companies to build repute in — even when they've been working in the nation for years — but the Quincy Group assists you by:

  • "Lending" you the trust and good reputation we've worked to build with Saudi industry leaders and decision-makers so that you can continue to build strong relationships and rapport of your own.
  • Giving you an in-depth understanding of the context, culture, customs and communication style you need to make your market involvement more successful.
  • Advising you on the intricacies of government policy as well as the interests of the Saudi government and how they align with yours.
  • Working with you to devise a personalized plan for your business expansion, marketing and connection-making in Saudi Arabia.
  • Making sure your goals are aligned with that of the Vision 2030's objectives for mutually-beneficial business relationships that last.
  • Protecting you from risk factors and paying attention to relevant policies like the FCPA Saudi Arabia to avoid conflict.

A Trusted Guide for a Changing Landscape

Success in this market requires adept political navigation and the ability to position oneself as a critical supplier of solutions that address the Saudi Government’s current policy imperatives.

Saudi Arabia is a country undergoing dramatic economic and social transformation. The decision making lines in the government are being completely redrawn. Today more than ever, foreign corporations need an experienced guide who understands the changing landscape and can navigate seamlessly within it. Understanding this shifting landscape is a skill we have acquired over four decades of hard-won experience working across a wide variety of industries and ministries.

Understanding this is important. Even as Saudi leadership works toward diversifying its economy, the legacy of state-owned enterprises means that the vast majority of business involves the national government directly or with but one or two degrees of separation. In practical terms, doing business in Saudi Arabia requires the ability to work effectively with senior government decision makers. Quincy has a keen sense of who the key decision makers are on any given issue, and we understand the context in which these policymakers must operate.
