In 2000, Saudi Arabia implemented the Foreign Investment Act (the “Act”), which liberalized the foreign investment laws in the Kingdom. Saudi Arabia became then the 149th member of the WTO on December 11, 2005. It made certain commitments with regard to a variety of economic activities. Some of Saudi Arabia's WTO commitments reflect existing provisions of Saudi law while others represent changes to existing Saudi laws.
A key element of Vision 2030 is the Kingdom’s commitment to support local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) but also to restructure the economy and make it more attractive to outside investors.
