Background

The Department for International Trade (DIT) and the Ministry of Investment Saudi Arabia (MISA) invite you to join “Setting up in Saudi Arabia – Virtual Workshop for UK Schools”


Education is a key sector within Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, and private sector participation and investment in the Saudi education system sits at the heart of this. Increasing the number of private schools in the Kingdom is a priority for Saudi education sector developments. 

 

The Department for International Trade (DIT) Education Team in Saudi Arabia is committed to supporting UK schools to engage with the Saudi market. To do so, we work closely with the Ministry of Investment Saudi Arabia (MISA), who provide specialist services to support international companies to invest in or set up and operate business in Saudi Arabia. 

 

This virtual workshop will provide an overview of the opportunities and incentives for UK Schools to set up in Saudi Arabia and the support available from DIT and MISA. It will also provide an overview of the business environment and the regulations for foreign education. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and give your views on further support you need to enter the Saudi market.
