Saudi Arabian Networking Event

Saudi Arabia is the largest economy in the Middle East. It is the world's leading oil exporter, with one-fourth of the world's proven oil reserves, and an income of $17 billion a month. Saudi Arabian economic development is focused on industrial diversification, infrastructure expansion, human resources capacity building, and increasing private-sector involvement to support a rapidly growing population. This is creating significant opportunities for Canadian companies in terms of exports of goods and services, and two-way investment. The Canada-Arab Business Council, in cooperation with Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada and Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, invites you to meet the members of a 40 person delegation of Senior Executives and Government Officials from Saudi Arabia, led by Salah Abdel Hadi Al-Qahtani, Chair - Saudi-Canadian Business Council and Executive Vice President of Abdul Hadl A. Al-Qahtani & Sons Group of Companies. One-on-one business meetings to follow the event, by prior registration. To preview the members of the delegation go to:
