The 3rd US-Saudi Business Opportunities Forum was held Sep 16-18, 2013, bringing together officials, business people, educators and specialists highlighting the U.S.-Saudi trade relationship and how U.S. companies can participate in Saudi Arabia's expansion.

Saudi Arabia is undergoing an extraordinary economic boom. Massive public investment, rapid private-sector growth and new sector initiatives are driving an expansion projected to offer more than $1 trillion in trade and investment opportunities over the next decade.

This panel of distinguished experts highlighted the investment opportunities in water.

  • 2. Saudi Arabia – A vibrant market for all serving the water markets  Rapidly growing population  Water scarcity means ongoing capital and operating investments to meet the demand  Privatization initiatives are bringing creative solutions and planned upgrades  Projects are funded and frequently move very quickly  Long term consistently funded investment programs are being implemented to provide for the Kingdoms’ current and future water needs throughout the water cycle “We have found that we, as an American company, are welcomed and valued in Saudi Arabia in the water sector.” Rob Smith – CH2M HILL
  • 3. Water Supply Options are Capital Intensive and Energy-Intensive  East Coast: Primary source is desalinated seawater; also non- renewable groundwater resources  Red Sea Coast: Desalinated seawater and renewable water resources  Platform: Non-renewable groundwater resources only; desalinated water is supplied from the East Coast water province  Northern Shield: Renewable water resources, although rainfall is much lower than in the Southern Shield  Southern Shield: Renewable water resources due to significant rainfall amounts (up to 500 millimeters (mm)/year)
