SMEs can play key role in boosting Saudi exports
RIYADH: Saudi small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can play a pivotal role in increasing Saudi exports through their participation in trade fairs in Germany, said Commissioner of the German Ministry of Industry and Commerce in the Kingdom Andreas Hergenrother.
The commissioner, speaking in a lecture organized by the SME Committee at Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI), said Saudi-German trade ties have experienced remarkable development in the last few years which led to the increase of trade exchange between the two countries.
The commission has been active in providing support to Saudi firms including legal services, business visits, finding partners, marketing consultancy, and selection of appropriate fairs.
The commission has shown extreme concern over the SME sector for its role in pushing Saudi exports upwards through their participation at international exhibitions held in Germany.
The commission has embarked on the allocation of a pavilion for Saudi companies at certain trade fairs in Germany such as Hanover and Cologne to showcase their products within the context of the Saudi exports development program, he said.
