Saudi Arabia is the largest market in the Middle East, the only Arab economy present at G20 and also the largest area of commercial and economical opportunities, with a friendly environment for businesses to be developed in the region.

The country has a continental dimension, a population of around 27 million, including about a third of foreigners. The capital city (Riyadh) has 6 million people living in it.

It is still an unknown and unexplored market for most of the Portuguese economic agents, with plenty of differences when compared to others where they're more used to perform.
