Upon execution, these investment opportunities will allow industrialists and investors to meet the increasing demand for industrial products in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the region." During parallel sessions, GOIC experts revealed specialized investment opportunities for Qatari and Gulf markets with a total value ranging between 300.5 million USD and 315.6 million USD.
