UK companies are invited to join a Partnership Forum in Al-Khobar on 4-5 April, organised by the Saudi British Joint Business Council (SBJBC). This event follows the launch of Saudi Vision 2030 and more recently the announcement of a multi billion-dollar investment programme set to turn the Kingdom into a major user and exporter of renewable energy.
Date: 04 April 2017
Location: Al-Khobar (Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia)
The forum will be of interest to innovative UK companies ranging from engineering to technology, looking to access energy sector supply chains in Saudi Arabia, or seeking a Saudi partner, investor, or new client.
Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil company, is based in Al-Khobar and has an annual capital spend of $30-40 billion. It is interested in investing globally in early stage and high growth companies with technologies of strategic importance to Aramco including energy efficiency, carbon and environmental management, and renewables technology.
