A German delegation of 15 Chief Executive Officers from major German Companies concluded today a five-day visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that included meetings with some of the kingdom’s key political and financial leaders.
The delegation was headed by Jürgen Fitschen, Member of the Management Board of Deutsche Bank AG and some senior Deutsche Bank representatives.
The visit started in Riyadh where they met with Senior Management from key Saudi Companies and authorities including Al Zamil Group, Saudi Industrial Development Fund, Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), Ministry of Economy and Planning as well as Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA). In addition, a dinner was held by the German Embassy in Riyadh on the honor of the delegations visit to the Kingdom.
