GVRC White Paper

On December 1, 2016 German business leaders in Saudi Arabia launched a “German Vision 2030 Realization Committee” (GVRC) to demonstrate the commitment of German companies to the Kingdom and its visionary transformation. The Committee represents major German investors in Saudi Arabia, many of them being present in the Kingdom for decades and having a strong local footprint in the country. The GVRC is facilitated and fostered by GESALO.

The GVRC aims to a) illustrate the role of the German industry to achieve the goals of the Saudi Vision 2030, b) serve as an active dialogue partner for Saudi-German cooperation, c) Act as a communication platform for best practices and potential replication by the German business community.

In this context, the ‘German Vision 2030 Realization Committee’ published a White Paper in September 2018. This White Paper has been developed by GESALO based upon input from the Committee comprising representatives of the following companies:

• Siemens
• Siemens Healthineers
• thyssenkrupp
• Linde
• V-Line
• Airbus
• Detasad
• DB Schenker
