This is achieved by enhancing their competitiveness and minimizing the risk of non-payment.

"In light of the growing demand for the petrochemical sector, we are pleased to work with the AGMC, and we are making an agreement which will have an effective economic impact in raising the rate of Saudi exports. We confirm our commitment to continue efforts in cooperation with partners with experience and financial capabilities to enable Saudi non-oil exports, and increase their access to new markets at the regional and international levels in accordance with the objectives of Saudi Vision 2030", he added.
