South Yorkshire firms are being urged to explore opportunties for trade with Saudi Arabia.

The call comes from UK Trade & Investment expert Brian Aungiers, who is leading a trade mission to the kingdom next month. Mr Aungiers says South Yorkshire firms have the products, skills and expertise to capitalise on emerging opportunities in Saudi Arabia.

“There is a huge appetite in Saudi Arabia for the expertise UK businesses can bring, and firms across South Yorkshire are placed to deliver products and services they need,” says Mr Aungiers.

“Yorkshire and the Humber is a renowned hub for the UK’s energy sector, with at least 400 businesses within the supply chain offering extensive experience and skills in every aspect, ranging from traditional oil and gas, to renewables.

“Businesses here have the experience and skills born from the region’s long heritage in offshore gas, conventional and nuclear generation, offshore wind power and biofuels,” he added.
