Saudi Arabia

Oil production currently provides more than 90% of Saudi Arabia's wealth. The government has recently tried to diversify the economy with private investment in the healthcare and tourism industries as well as improvements in telecommunications and natural gas exploration. Saudi Arabia has successfully pushed through some business reforms, such as loosening foreign ownership limits on its stock market, launching its inaugural tourist visa and opening up four new industries to 100% foreign investment. These improvements caused Saudi Arabia to climb 30 places in the World Bank's Doing Business Index 2019.
