Doing Business in Saudi Arabia

Business culture iin Saudi ArabiaExpats anticipating doing business in Saudi Arabia must prepare themselves for a unique experience – the Saudi corporate world is perhaps the most unfamiliar of any of the Gulf countries (that is, by Western standards, of course) – and in all likelihood, expats are going to have to remain flexible and learn new skills in order to make a real success of their time in the country.

Saudi Arabia was placed 49th (out of 189 countries) in The World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Survey for 2015. The country ranked particularly highly in the fields of registering property (20th), paying taxes (3rd) and dealing with construction permits (21st).
