Expand to Saudi Arabia

Why bringing your business to Saudi Arabia should be on your radar

Creative Zone invites you to a special webinar to help you plan your expansion into Saudi Arabia.

Businesses looking to expand their operations across the Middle East need to look no further than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Through their VISION 2030 announced by H.R.H. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, the country has set in place initiatives aimed at opening up the economy to foreign investors.

The country’s bold economic reforms have made the Kingdom a top choice amongst entrepreneurs to establish themselves in the region, such as – introducing changes to their investment law, updated business regulation, more openness to competition and international trade, as well as easing the barriers of entry to investors.

RSVP to attend this special webinar, as our business setup advisors share expert advice and procedures and expert to prepare you for expanding your business to Saudi Arabia.
