The Saudi market is the largest market in the Middle East and North Africa region by almost every measure for almost everything. As a result, hundreds of foreign companies are seeking to export their goods and services to the Kingdom every year.

For some it may be their first time doing business in Saudi, for others it may be that they are seeking to expand and build on an existing contract or relationship.

The AEI Consulting Practice exists to accelerate market entry and business growth for exporters to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

We have supported over 500 clients and counting and have helped exporters from nearly 40 different countries all over the world, from Austria to New Zealand.


From initial market research through to Hosted Market Visits and Route to Market Strategy planning, AEI Saudi accelerates market entry and business growth for exporters to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
