With more than $12 billion in exports flowing from the United States to Saudi Arabia in 2008 alone, there is perhaps no better time to explore business opportunities with the Middle East’s most import-intensive market. With that in mind, the New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center will be holding a “Doing Business in Saudi Arabia” workshop at the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development (172 Pembroke Road) on Thursday, August 20th from 9 a.m.-noon.
Saudi Arabia features a vibrant business atmosphere, especially for U.S. companies in the following sectors – power generation, water, education, medical equipment, technology and IT as well as transportation and related logistical services.
Participants in this conference will receive an overview of the Saudi market including the logistics of exporting products and any unique characteristics distinguishing Saudi Arabia from other exporting partners. Panelists, including the President of the U.S. Saudi Business Council, will share their personal experiences of working with Saudi Arabian companies, offering firsthand insight into Saudi culture, business protocol and overall country customs.
The cost of the program is $40 per person. To register, please contact Katy Reno at (603) 271-8444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
