Beyond being the largest economy in the Arab world, accounting for 25% of the Arab GDP, Saudi Arabia is the largest free economic market in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.


According to industry sources, more than 5,200 construction projects are currently ongoing in Saudi Arabia, with a value of USD 819 billion.
