“Trade Policy Reviews” analyse the trade policies and practices of each member of the WTO. The reviews consist of three parts: an independent report by the WTO Secretariat, a report by the government, and the concluding remarks by the Chair of the WTO’s Trade Policy Review Body. The opening section - “key trade facts” - provides a visual overview of the WTO member’s major exports/imports, main export destinations, origins for its imports and other key data. This edition looks into the trade practices of The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.



Concluding Remarks by the Chairperson of The Trade Policy Review Body, H.E. Mr. Mario Matus and He. Mr. Eduardo Muñoz Gómez at The Trade Policy Review of The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia 25 and 27 January 2012

This first Trade Policy Review of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has given us a better understanding of the evolution of its trade and related policies since its accession to the WTO in 2005, and enabled us collectively to measure the challenges it faces in maintaining its economic prosperity. Our discussion has proved more engaging thanks to the full and open participation of the Saudi delegation, led by H.E. Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah, Minister of Commerce and Industry, and by the insightful remarks made by the discussant, H.E. Ambassador Joakim Reiter of Sweden, as well as the active participation by numerous Members.
