Dr. Samra-Rohte confirmed that a permanent German Desk in Jeddah will play a major role in exploring investment opportunities in both countries and strengthening Saudi-German trade relations throughout the Kingdom, with the support of the main office In Riyadh and the German Desk in the Eastern Province, which will allow GESALO to cover more sectors of the Saudi economy closely, in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
