  • Apple to Conduct Research, Sell, and Market Products in Saudi Arabia


    Apple was granted the license to operate research, retail, and marketing operations in Saudi Arabia recently, which is a first time access to the region for Apple. Saudi Arabian newspaper Al Eqtisadiah reported that Apple will be operating under the name “Apple of Saudi Arabia.” Within the license, Apple can conduct work and training to develop the region’s IT, computer and smart device industry, as well as conduct marketing activities and product maintenance.

    Saudi Arabia’s General Investment (SAGIA) decided to grant Apple the license, as a part of a new strategy in targeting foreign investment and business deals. According to the report, the source has claimed:

    The strategy of investing in the Kingdom to establish a strong economy [is] characterized by openness and flexibility and giving the private sector in the Kingdom — both domestic and foreign — all the opportunities and facilities [needed] to enhance its role and its contribution to the GDP.
    Apple was a top contender for the program due to the company’s success in sales and products like the iPhone. The company is already conducting research and development facilities in Israel. Numerous patents relating to system-on-chip technology and memory have been produced in Apple’s Israel-research labs. But as of right now, it is unclear if Apple of Saudi Arabia will be focusing on the same tasks or support infrastructure or maintain retail stores.
