RIYADH: Top Saudi businessmen have expressed optimism that joint
ventures or partnerships could be formed with Chinese counterparts
during King Salman’s visit.
Sheikh Abdullah Al-Meleihi, board member of the Council of Saudi
Chambers of Commerce and Industry, said 65-70 businessmen will join the
king’s entourage during his trip, and they are looking forward to
forming industrial partnerships with Chinese counterparts.
He said King Salman is expected to visit China, the world’s
second-biggest economy, in mid-March. From there, he will proceed to
Japan, Brunei and Jordan, where he will attend the Arab League Summit.
Last Thursday he was in Indonesia, and before that Malaysia.
