WEBINAR: Legal Considerations for U.S. Companies Adapting to the Evolving Saudi Defense Sector
Monday, July 27, 2020
9:00 am EDT | 4:00 pm KSA
From 2015 – 2019, Saudi Arabia has been the largest importer of defense products and the third largest spender for defense overall in the world, trailing only the United States and China.
During that same period, the United States has been the largest exporter of defense products to the Middle East, 50% of those exports went to Saudi Arabia.
Saudi government efforts to localize 50 percent of total government military spending in the Kingdom by the year 2030 is creating new opportunities as well as generating new frontiers for committed U.S. players in the Saudi defense market.
Join the U.S.-Saudi Business Council and AlDhabaan & Partners in association with Eversheds Sutherland for an executive webinar briefing on the considerations U.S. companies should factor in to the changing defense industry environment in Saudi Arabia.
Topics that will be discussed include:
- Protection of Controlled Unclassified Information
- Core JV issues – IT protection, governance
- Export control issues related to critical technologies
- Supply chain issues arising out of the Covid-19 pandemic
