Some $350bn-worth of deals were announced between Saudi Arabia and US companies during the hugely successful state visit of US President Donald Trump to Saudi Arabia.

The news came just one week after the IMF called for Riyadh to ease back on its tough austerity programme and for the kingdom to return its focus to driving growth, particularly in the non-oil sector.

Featuring the exclusive insight of Oil & Gas Editor Mark Watts and Power & Water Editor Andrew Roscoe, who was in Saudi Arabia covering President Trump’s visit to the kingdom, MEED organised an exclusive webinar looking at whether we have reached the end of austerity in the kingdom, and what we can expect next.  

Featuring the findings from MEED’s latest research on the kingdom, the webinar addressed important issues such as:

  • Have we reached the end of austerity in Saudi Arabia?
  • The outlook for the kingdom’s oil and gas and energy sector
  • Kick-starting the Saudi projects sector
  • The latest on Saudi Aramco’s $334bn investment programme
  • The expansion of Aramco’s long-term agreements for offshore contracting
  • An update on the kingdom’s 9.5GW renewable energy programme
  • Riyadh’s plans to privatise the electricity sector
  • The Aramco IPO, In-Kingdom Total Value Add programme and other policies shaping spending in Saudi Arabia
