Dear readers,

GESALO can look back on an exciting and very busy year 2017. Not less than 15 business delegations with more than 200 participants were organized by our team – inbound as well as outbound. In Saudi Arabia and in Bahrain we hosted altogether 33 events with more than 1,500 participants. In addition, we  accompanied and facilitated 9,100 Saudi visitors and 59 exhibitors at numerous trade fairs in Germany. I personally contributed to nearly 20 events in Germany that featured business developments in the Kingdom. We can proudly say that it was fruitful year which paved the way for an even better year 2018. 

Indeed, 2018 is going to be an extraordinary year for GESALO. We are celebrating our 40 years anniversary in the Kingdom, together with our long-term partners and friends. In this context, we are particularly pleased to have eminent German companies on our side, such as thyssenkrupp, Lufthansa and V-LINE as Platinum Sponsors as well as Coperion and Linde as Gold Sponsors, who will accompany us through our anniversary year. 

Wishing you a fresh start in 2018 I remain with best regards!

Kind Regards
Oliver Oehms
Delegate of German Industry & Commerce for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen
