New Zealand and
Saudi Arabia business ties
With the largest economy in the Middle East and wide-ranging plans for modernisation, Saudi Arabia offers a wide variety of opportunities for New Zealand businesses.
Two-way trade between New Zealand and Saudi Arabia now totals $1.25 billion annually, with Saudi Arabia ranking as New Zealand's second-biggest export market in the Middle East.
NZTE opened an office in Riyadh in September 2014, and this team has since grown in line with New Zealand’s increased trade with Saudi Arabia. The office also services Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait.
