Dear Friends of the German Business Community,

The past two months were busy with delegations from and to Germany: The respective delegations about Power Generation from Solar & Wind Energy incl. CSP and Innovative Smart City Solutions with a Focus on Transport Infrastructure and Logistics to Saudi-Arabia offered many opportunities for German companies to enhance or build their business in the Kingdom.

From the Saudi-Arabian perspective, Germany remains a valued partner. This was underpinned by the visit of the Minister of Investment to Berlin in March including a successful CEO roundtable as well as the Offtaker-trip with the Ministry of Energy to the Rhein-Ruhr area in February.

The AHK World Business Outlook survey is out. Please find below further details to make your voice heard. In the name of the whole GESALO team, we wish our local partners Ramadan Kareem!
