Events / 13-10-21 / Share Link

Alongside improved financing facilities, access to markets is one of the key priorities for companies trading and exporting goods and products in line with Saudi Arabia’s diversification drive and growth strategy. So which corridors are being targeted for growth?

Farrukh Siddiqui (Founding Partner, Emerging Capital Management Partners), Yusuf Ali Khan (Head of Trade for Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and Turkey, Treasury & Trade Solutions, Citi), Ahmad AlAlawi (Head of GTRF Origination & Client Advisory, SABB), Natalia Haas (Managing Partner, Mercator Commodities), Ahmed Madkour (Managing Director, Recovery Advisers) and Anjum Noman Mirza (Head of Trade Finance, Saudi National Bank) considered the extent to which greater focus has been placed on ‘riskier’ emerging markets, supply and demand gaps and the appetite of banks for financing transactions – both export and inbound trade – in those markets keen to open themselves up for privatisation, greater foreign investment and rebuilding programmes, including discussions in changes with the country’s relationships in key geostrategic markets such as Sub-Saharan Africa.
