Seminar to focus on doing business in Saudi
Dubai, March 11, 2010
An interactive discussion on the key considerations for entities doing business in Saudi Arabia will be held in Dubai later this month.
The event, organised by Clyde & Co, will be held at the Monarch Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, on March 24.
With a $400 billion stimulus package announced early last year, Saudi Arabia represents significant opportunity for businesses looking to expand in the emerging markets of the region, said a statement.
The Saudi government has a long term policy to encourage a more diversified economy making the kingdom an attractive market for businesses across a range of sectors.
The seminar will answer a number the key questions including:
• The law of the land - how do I navigate the legal landscape?
• How can I operate in Saudi Arabia - what options are available for establishing operations in the kingdom?
• What other operational issues should I be considering - what are the employment laws?
• Avoiding mistakes - the Anti-Corruption legislation.
• Maximising growth options in Saudi Arabia - what should I be considering as part of my business plan if I am looking at potential M&A transactions, other financing options and the potential for IPO’s?
Abdulaziz Al-Bosaily, partner and head of Clyde & Co in Saudi Arabia, will be joined by other key members of the company's Saudi team to discuss the issues. -TradeArabia News Service
