Diversification of Saudi's economy could benefit Africa

Saudi Arabia International Oil and Gas Exhibition opens doors for the African market

Trade fairs have continually demonstrated that they are one of the most efficient means of marketing and selling products and services. Trade fairs not only place buyer and seller together in a pragmatic setting but allow principles to gather and assess the core fundamentals driving the economy. 

This year sees in the 8th Edition of SAOGE, the Saudi Arabia International Oil and Gas Exhibition, a testament to its place in the Kingdom’s industrial calendar. This year SAOGE will welcome some 100 companies from 25 countries with more than 10,000 visitors coming to attend the show. 

From oil and gas asset upgrades and privatisation to the development of major transport infrastructures, major investments are already underway, creating much excitement in the region.

The core questions investors are now asking include; who will build the facilities and provide the latest technical solutions? Which partners can provide the innovation, logistics, training and products and services needed to realise the investment?

African investors have the unique opportunity to invest in a stable, growing economy which secures the region with economic and political stability.
