Risk Mitigation: Minimize the Risks of Doing Business in Saudi Arabia

As a rapidly developing nation reaching towards a new period of socioeconomic changes, Saudi Arabia is a market in the midst of a transformative transition into a productivity-based future.

The nation has plans in place to redefine its economy, stimulate growth, improve both social and economic conditions and develop each business sector through the initiatives National Transformation Program 2020 and Vision 2030 — which lay out strategic objectives and key performance indicators to achieve by the designated year. Saudi Arabia's ambitious program includes plans for stimulation and improvement in productivity, employment, education, energy, entertainment and every aspect of its local industries and social spheres.

In the changing atmosphere and economy, U.S. companies doing business in Saudi Arabia must make a tangible impact and make meaningful connections for improved future business. In such a complex nation, where government and culture play a large role in business dealings and where building essential relationships is a very specific process, Saudi Arabian business ventures represent real potential for success— but they also carry risks.

As a seasoned advisory firm well-versed in Saudi Arabian government, customs and business development, The Quincy Group will help you minimize the risks of doing business in Saudi Arabia, build your rapport with decision-makers and succeed in expanding your influence and bettering your footing in this region.
