Grains to Saudi Arabia Sector Update

About event:

The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) is partnering with Grains Australia and the Saudi Grains Organisation (SAGO) to bring you a grains to Saudi Arabia sector update. 

The Saudi barley market is being liberalised and this will open barley purchasing to more exporters.   Instead of a single, state-related purchasing organisation, imports will be purchased by private sector entities.  These changes will offer greater flexibility and create more opportunities for mid-tier and smaller exporters from Australia. 

The market opportunity is large in global terms; Saudi Arabia is currently the world’s third largest importer of barley.  Saudi Arabia is also moving to free up its domestic market in barley, with prices responding to market forces. 

Please join us to listen to the Saudi Grain Organization speaker providing Saudi Arabia market update on grains in general, barley specifically
