Insight Series: Capitalizing on Opportunities in Saudi Arabia
Join us for an exclusive discussion with King & Spalding on how to capitalize on the opportunities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom continues to invest in various sectors to diversify the economy and is carrying out legal and social reforms to enhance market attractiveness for foreign investment. Key sectors include healthcare, sports, real estate, middle-income housing, and new arenas such as e-gaming, automotive, circular economy, entertainment, tourism, and aviation.
King and Spalding have been advising clients for over 20 years on doing business and making investments in Saudi Arabia, including developing various Vision 2030 projects, such as high-profile giga projects, renewable energy projects, and infrastructure/PPPs in Saudi Arabia. They have also been actively advising clients on the requirements and potential benefits of the Regional Headquarters Program, the various localization requirements (e.g., Saudization or local content requirements), and the maximizing of protection for joint ventures and agreements under the new Saudi Companies Law and the Saudi Civil Transactions Law.
