Burgeoning Industry

The Saudi mining sector is expanding at around 9% per annum and provides a growing opportunity for global exporters of technology and expertise.

This is set against a background of significant recent changes in the country’s mining law giving greater access for foreign companies wanting to invest. The new laws allow for companies to work either with Saudi’s parastatal Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden) or through joint ventures with local companies.

There is also sizeable domestic, regional and international markets for high grade,industrial raw materials from Saudi Arabia.
