Saudi Arabia

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the largest country in the Arabian Peninsula with its capital Riyadh, accounting for a third of its population and foreign residents accounting for a third. Modern KSA was established in 1932. At the time, it did not have the infrastructure needed to support the economic growth. However, in 1938 the landscape changed. Oil discovery in commercial quantities provided all the funds needed to build schools, airports and hospitals.

Today, the transformation continues to grow and they continue to be early adopters of technology. This emerging economy has superseded the oil industry and education of Arabs in the fields of engineering and software is taking precedent.

United Arab Emirates

The UAE is the Middle East’s second largest economy, after Saudi Arabia, and one of the wealthiest countries in the region on a per capita basis. Its GDP in 2019 was estimated at US$427.9 billion, a real GDP growth rate of around 1.6 per cent.

The UAE has six per cent of the world’s oil reserves and the seventh largest proven natural gas reserves. Steps towards economic diversification have already been taken, with a large proportion of Government funds going towards creating a competitive knowledge economy and sustainable environmental infrastructure, including investment in Information Technology.

Kuwait

According to the World Bank, Kuwait is the fifth richest country in the world by gross national income per capita. As a result of various diversification policies, petroleum now accounts for 43% of total GDP and 70% of export earnings. The biggest non-oil industry is steel manufacturing.

In the past five years, there has been a significant rise in entrepreneurship and small business start-ups in Kuwait. The informal sector is also on the rise, mainly due to the popularity of Instagram businesses. In 2020, Kuwait ranked fourth in the MENA region in startup funding after the UAE, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

Egypt

Egypt has a developed energy market based on coal, oil, natural gas, and hydro power. Substantial coal deposits in the northeast Sinai are mined at the rate of about 600,000 tonnes (590,000 long tons; 660,000 short tons) per year.

Egypt is counting on top liquid natural gas (LNG) exporter Qatar to obtain additional gas volumes in summer, while encouraging factories to plan their annual maintenance for those months of peak demand, said EGPC chairman, Tarek El Barkatawy. Egypt produces its own energy, but has been a net oil importer since 2008 and is rapidly becoming a net importer of natural gas.
