The Address Dubai Marina
Dubai is well known as the regional hub for businesses across the GCC and as a business council we would like to assist the companies based here by organizing events about doing business in the region. After successfully organizing events on Iraq, Pakistan, and Oman we are pleased to announce that the Netherlands Business Council in collaboration with the Consulate-General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Dubai are organizing an event on doing business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The event will take place on March 4th, at the Address Hotel Dubai Marina from 19.30 till 21.00.
KSA is a dynamic market for many companies, especially given its size and the recent developments. Due to the changes currently taking place it is a particularly interesting moment in time to discuss the possibilities but also challenges of working in KSA.
To tell us more on the subject, we are fortunate to welcome the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Saudi Arabia, H.E. Joost Reintjes, to our event. He will be joined by two Dutch companies, Philips Lighting Middle East & Turkey and IPS Powerful People, they will be presenting their views on doing business in KSA as well as answering your questions.
