Saudi Arabia Healthcare & Life Sciences Trade Mission


Saudi Arabia Healthcare & Life Sciences Trade Mission

Do not miss this unique possibility to learn about the opportunities in Saudi Arabia directly from decision-makers active in the market.

Healthcare UK and the Life Sciences team at the Department for International Trade are organising a trade mission to Saudi Arabia, aimed at UK healthcare and life sciences organisations interested in exporting to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has an estimated population of 32.6 million, which is expected to double by 2050, growing at a rate of 2.65% per annum. To meet this growing demand, the Saudi government has been investing heavily in hospitals and clinics in recent years, and seeking ways to provide better quality healthcare. Having previously served as a provider of healthcare services, the Saudi public sector is gradually transitioning to take on a more regulatory role, with the government increasingly encouraging private sector participation in the healthcare and life sciences sectors.

Relationship building is key to doing business in Saudi Arabia. Participants will have the chance to explore potential opportunities in both Riyadh and Jeddah, meet with key stakeholders from both government and the private sector, and discuss areas for potential collaboration. There will also be the opportunity to attend the Global Health Exhibition, Saudi Arabia’s biggest healthcare/life sciences business platform. Organisations can expect to find opportunities as part of this mission, by participating in DIT networking events with key stakeholders from the sector, and gain advice and support from governmental authorities and market experts.

  • Primary care delivery,
