End of Austerity: Saudi Arabia’s Turning Point
Some 350bn worth of deals were announced this week between Saudi Arabia and US companies during the hugely successful state visit of US President Donald Trump to Saudi Arabia.
The news came just one week after the IMF called for Riyadh to ease back on its tough austerity programme and for the kingdom to return its focus on driving growth particularly in the non-oil sector.
