Economic relations

Economic relations between Saudi Arabia and Germany are excellent and reach back long until before the foundation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in its present form. It were German companies who built the Hejaz railways in the early 20th century, and who since then have been present at every step in the development of the modern economy of Saudi-Arabia and the expansion of its infrastructure. Today they participate for example in the creation of a modern public transport system for Riyadh as well as in the diversification of the Saudi petrochemical industry. German companies are among the pioneers of energy technology, and promote the use of renewable energy for electricity generation and water desalination in the Kingdom.
