Saudi Arabia has attracted investment from companies of all sizes-from closely-held companies to multinational conglomerates in the energy, defense, healthcare, finance and other sectors. What these companies have in common is a plethora of business opportunities, government contracts and widespread demand for goods and services. At the same time, doing business in Saudi Arabia can be riddled with challenges, including laws in a constant state of flux, the lack of binding judicial precedent and key regulations that remain unpublished. These challenges highlight the need for a clear guide that explains Saudi law not only as it is written, but also as it is applied. This need is fulfilled in the present volume. Beginning with a general introduction to Islamic law (Shariʿa), this Legal Guide outlines the many legal aspects of doing business in Saudi Arabia, from trade, agency and distribution to government tenders and procurement, labor law, mergers and acquisitions. The book, providing an overview of laws such as tax and privacy regulations applicable to all companies, concludes with a discussion of arbitration, litigation and other forms of dispute resolution available in Saudi Arabia.

Genre: Business & Economics

For the last 60 years, Saudi Arabia has assumed a vital economic role and has been situated on the center stage of the global economic and political scene. While the market was once dominated by American and British firms, and later Japanese corporations, Korean and Chinese companies have now aggressively entered the market and have posed serious challenges to entrenched multinational corporations. The Saudi market has newly become an arena for unbridled competition. As companies must adapt and embark on creative means to sustain their positions in dynamic markets, multinational corporations must also find a comprehensive approach to dealing with cultural and political developments. Having a competitive edge demands familiarity with market nuances and peculiarities in addition to providing quality product and service. Business and Management Environment in Saudi Arabia is not primarily about how to conduct business in the region, but rather it provides insightful information to optimally guide western managers in conducting their operations in Saudi Arabia. The book offers essential information to engage effectively, manage business activities, resolve cultural understandings, and tackle appropriate issues of group dynamics, human resource management, managing change, and development and relations with the government and the general public. As such, it is required reading for both business leaders and academics alike.
