"Saudi Arabia remains the Middle East’s largest market for agricultural products and technologies, posting a steady eight per cent average annual growth. The Kingdom imported more than SAR 25.5 billion worth of agricultural products in 2008, an impressive increase of 42 per cent over the previous year. This year, agricultural projects are expected to account for 23 per cent of the country’s expected SAR 181 billion private sector investments, enhancing Saudi's status as major player in the regional agribusiness."
