Buoyed by rising oil prices and driven by an ambitious national development plan – Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia presents market opportunities for U.S. exporters across a spectrum of industries.
Join the Minnesota Trade Office, Global Minnesota and the U.S.-Saudi Business Council for a presentation and discussion on best prospects in the Saudi market for Minnesota companies. The Council will review opportunities in the newly emerging industries of tourism, sports and entertainment as well as traditionally strong export opportunities in defense and security, power, energy, mining, water and water treatment, and medical health — with a special emphasis on new technologies driving development in these sectors.
Saudi Arabia is aggressively pursuing Vision 2030 and investment in cutting edge technologies and new materials is a major part of the plan. These technologies include cross industry applications of AI, cloud computing, cybersecurity, digitalization, predictive analytics, clean tech and smart grid power solutions, advanced plastics and composites to reduce corrosion, solar and wind power, and new technologies to produce blue hydrogen and green hydrogen, among others.
The Council will also brief participants on a planned trade mission for December 5-8, 2022 that will focus on introducing new technologies and advanced materials to potential market partners and end users in the Kingdom.
This will be a hybrid event. If you cannot attend in-person, you may register for virtual participation. If you have questions about the program, please call Abdul at 651-558-1425,
