GESALO Business & Event News

Dear Partners and Friends,
While this newsletter is published, I am about to leave with a high-level Saudi delegation to Hannover and Berlin. In Hanover, the world’s largest fair for industrial supplies is the obvious platform for reaching out to German SMEs and industrial giants alike. Led by the Saudi Center for International Strategic Partnerships (SCISP), we will be jointly hosting a ‘Saudi-German Industrial Cooperation Workshop’ with a number of Saudi Government institutions. Those quick to decide, please feel free to join on April 2nd at the Congress Center of Hannovermesse!

The same day, the Global Cluster for Oil & Gas of the German Chambers Abroad (AHKs) will be launching another edition of the (global) publication “Doing Business in the Oil & Gas Sector: Opportunities for German Companies 2019”. For those, who don’t want to wait – it is ready for download on our webpage.

Before Ramadan we will be inviting to our traditional ‘German Breakfast’ again, this time in Jeddah (April 9) and in Riyadh (April 16).
Please contact Ms. Layla Shoil in case you want to join. 

As you can see, we are heading towards a busy month, before the start of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Hope seeing you on one of the mentioned occasions?

With best regards from Riyadh,
Oliver Oehms
Delegate of German Industry & Commerce for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen


The Home of Innovation™ is a SABIC growth initiative

The Home of Innovation™ Team hosted the monthly German Business Circle at
SABIC premises.

After greeting words from Mr. Oliver Oehms, Delegate of GESALO, H.E. Jörg Ranau, German Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, expressed his gratitude for the hospitality of the Team.

Mr. Fuad Mosa, Vice-President of SABIC gave a short presentation on the topic of the Localization efforts of SABIC. He further highlighted the importance of the German industry’s involvement in this project. Followed by an introduction video, the Home of Innovation™ Tour was opened in an astonishing and cinematic way. SABIC experts accompanied the members of the German Business Circle during the tour and explained amongst other things the stunning 40 % reduction of the Energy and Water usage in the Home of Innovation™.

The evening was rounded up by a discussion round as well as a networking dinner.

The German Business Circle (Deutscher Wirtschaftskreis Saudi-Arabien, DWSA) is
a regular gathering of high-level representatives of the German Business community
in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Its aim is to provide the community with updates
on current business developments in the Kingdom, by enabling exchange with experts from various economic sectors and Government institutions.  

The DWSA gathers typically monthly in Riyadh, and six times in Jeddah as well as
in the Eastern Province.

The ex officio Chairman of DWSA is the Delegate of German Industry & Commerce
for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen, Mr. Oliver Oehms.

For further information please contact: Mr. Ali Dogan
