BY HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS
PRINCE SULTAN BIN SALMAN BIN ABDULAZIZ
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a changing country headed towards a new future. Many things have changed in our country over the past ten years and much more will still evolve. In a world which is ever more connected and interdependent, Saudi Arabia aims to play a major role in international politics and the global economy.
A member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) since 2005 and the G20 since 2008, Saudi Arabia is witnessing a golden age of development while the global economy is still experiencing a downturn. With large-scale investment in infrastructure, industry, housing, health and education, Saudi Arabia is attracting huge inflows of foreign investment and gaining its rightful place in world trade.
By teaming up with the private sector and working incessantly to facilitate the incorporation of new companies and cut red tape, Saudi Arabia has succeeded in being nominated the 12th country for ease of doing business worldwide in the World Bank's annual survey, far affront of countries like Germany that figures at number 19th or France at number 29th, and tops the list within the MENA region.
As the world´s first exporter of oil, our country is rich in more than natural resources alone. KSA also has an extraordinarily rich culture and heritage. Overseeing the preservation of our past and working towards a sustainable development of the country is the Saudi Commission for Tourism and Antiquities (SCTA).
In association with international communications company Global Gulf Consulting, the SCTA is proud to present FindMe in Saudi - a guide to the country in its 2013 incarnation, offering a multi-faceted overview that combines business and leisure, economy and heritage.
FindMe in Saudi aims to capture the current development of Saudi Arabia in the words of the people who live and work here. It has the ambition to be an authoritative source of information for investors, businessmen and travellers, providing you with all the information you need to know at your fingertips. It is time to firmly position KSA as an attractive investment destination.

Our latest investment report on Kuwait was recently published in one of the leading Spanish dailies, ABC. FindMe in Kuwait explores the economic perspectives of Kuwait and the country´s future plans to compete with its fast developing neighbours. Once the leading country of the Gulf, Kuwait has remained silent for the past decade. And although many would like to see faster changes, Kuwait is moving, at its pace, to them. Inexorably. Learn about who is who in Kuwait and read what the leaders say about their own future in our upcoming release: FindMe in Kuwait Mobile app.
