SBJBC’s Biannual Meeting took place at the Council of Saudi Chambers following a review meeting with SAGIA on the progress of business environment reform. It was attended by UK and Saudi members as well as members of the Technology & Smart Cities Delegation. Discussion focused on issue of work visas and entrepreneur licenses.
SBJBC organised a 4-day visit to Jeddah and Riyadh from 18-21 November for 16 UK technology and smart city companies. The mission was a first by SBJBC UK and a direct follow-up to SBJBC’s SME Partnership Forum at Level39, London in April 2018. It coincided with SBJBC’s Biannual Meeting in Riyadh. Many thanks to our Saudi and British members for their support. We have received excellent feedback from delegates.
