Saudi Arabia is the largest economy in the Middle East and the UK’s main trading partner in the Gulf. The country is politically and financially stable; diversification measures have reduced dependence on oil and gas and the private sector is thriving.
Current and upcoming projects include upgrading Saudi Arabia’s infrastructure, health and education systems and the construction of six industrial and four economic cities, including King Abdullah Economic City which will be home to one of the world’s largest ports.
