Dear Friends of the German Business Community, 

We wish you a happy and successful year 2023! At GESALO, we initiated the new year with two roundtables – one among CEOs of German companies in Saudi-Arabia and a high-level gathering with a visitor from the German Foreign Ministry. The German-Saudi Arabian energy dialogue continues its fruitful work to foster a stronger cooperation on innovative solutions for a sustainable energy supply in both countries. There will be a Saudi energy delegation to Germany, negotiating hydrogen offtake-agreements as well as a working group meeting in February.

On the same note, we are looking forward to our Solar and Wind Energy Delegation next week with over seven German companies participating.
