Saudi Arabia’s General Investment Authority (SAGIA) has confirmed that the organisation’s CEO will present its latest IT project at an unveiling in Riyadh on February 5 2007. A host of regional and international public and private sector leaders are expected to be in attendance. SAP Arabia, SAGIA’s partner in the new project, which is yet to be named, claims it will be the most significant IT deployment in the country’s recent history, and says it will have an immediate impact on Saudi Arabia’s overall economy. SAP Arabia will also sponsor a related e-government workshop for Saudi government IT managers on the same morning. “SAGIA is one of the Kingdom’s fastest and most ambitious government agencies, and SAP is proud to be their technology partner for this significant project,” said Essam Enany, president at SAP Arabia. SAGIA was established in April 2000 to provide services and facilities that promote investment and economic development in KSA. It plays a leading role in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) and promoting its newly liberalised investment laws. In particular, SAGIA is involved in plans to establish four economic cities, which will attract nearly US$80 billion from external investors.
