Dear Friends of the German Business Community, 

While heading towards the end of 2022, GESALO would like to thank its partners and collaborators for contributing to a successful year. Together, we can look back on engaging events and numerous delegation visits to the Kingdom that fostered bilateral economic relations.  

With the development of new sectors in Saudi Arabia, the business opportunities for German companies are multiplying. The automotive industry is only one example which will be highlighted in our next GSBM issue in December. Despite the global economic turmoil, the results of the AHK Business Outlook 2022 suggest an optimistic future for the Saudi economy and both its national and international stakeholders.  

After limited activities in the years of Covid, 2023 will kick-off with delegation visits on Smart Cities and Power Generation from Solar and Wind. The trade fair sector is also in full swing again: Our team will support the Saudi pavilion at the „Grüne Woche” in Berlin, followed by the Spielwarenmesse and Fruit Logistica.  

I wish you a Happy Festive season and all the best for 2023. Enjoy reading the Newsletter!

The main reasons are the economic consequences of the Russian war against Ukraine and China's zero-covid policy.
