Riyadh, July 12, 2010
Saudi Arabia's automotive sales value is expected to reach over SR80.6 billion ($21.5 billion) by 2014, according to a recent report by BMI.

'The robust growth forecast underlines the resiliency, the strength and the sound fundamentals of Saudi Arabia's automotive market, creating a genuinely attractive business environment for local, regional and international investors and key industry players,' stated Kamil Al Jawhari, project manager of Riyadh Motor Show at Riyadh Exhibitions Company.
