On this occasion, His Excellency Engineer Saad Al-Khalab said: “As part of our ongoing contributions at the Saudi Export-Import Bank to empowering the Saudi non-oil economy, we are intensifying our efforts to increase the percentage of Saudi non-oil exports, and encourage national companies to export their products by enhancing their competitive capabilities and reducing non-payment risks.” In light of the growing demand on the petrochemical sector, we are pleased to work with Advanced Global Marketing, as it is one of the largest companies in the sector. This agreement will have an effective economic impact on raising the rate of Saudi exports.  It also affirms our commitment to continuing efforts in cooperating with partners who have the experience and financial capabilities to enable non-oil Saudi exports, and increase the opportunities for them to enter new regional and international markets in line with the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.”

Through this cooperation with the Saudi Export-Import Bank, the Advanced aims to protect its exports against the risks of non-payment.  He further stressed the company’s keenness to contribute to achieving the goals of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, as to increasing the contribution of non-oil products to the Kingdom’s gross domestic product. On the other hand, it seeks to enhance its ability to contribute effectively to enhancing the competitiveness of the Saudi products and supporting the “Made in Saudi Arabia” slogan by increasing its access to regional and global markets.”
