General Electric Seals Deals in Saudi Arabia


General Electric (GE) sealed a one billion riyal ($267 million) shared arrangement on Wednesday, with Saudi Arabia's state-backed Dussur industrial development company to manufacture gas turbines in the eastern city of Dammam. This includes memorandum of understanding which would require further agreements to materialize.

In addition, the agreement was followed by an announcement of GE a $15 billion of business deals during the visit of the U.S President, Donald Trump, last Saturday to Riyadh as part of Saudi’s motivation to expand its economy beyond oil. The deals involve almost $7 billion of goods and services from GE itself that will run from the power and healthcare sectors to the oil and gas industry and mining. GE’s created projects were to help Saudi make their power generation more proficient and to provide digital technology to the maneuvers of oil from Saudi Aramco which aims to create $4 billion of yearly productivity developments at Aramco. This will also coincide with medical research and training.
General Electric and Dussur signed a memorandum of understanding last year that is expected to result in nearly 3.75 billion riyals of investment by the two joint companies across multiple sectors in 2017.
