Juergen Schmitz, general manager, Infiniti in the Middle East, said: “The Middle East is a very important market for Infiniti globally. The region provides our third highest market share worldwide and we are committed to growing further. To achieve this we have a robust mid-term plan in place which took a significant step forward last week as we began roll-out of our strategy for strengthening of our position in Saudi Arabia.
“With our partners across the region delivering impressive results, an in-demand performance model range and sales of Q50 beginning across the region this month, we enter the new financial year with confidence,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
