He said other businessmen and women could also join the new company being an investment firm. “It will not be limited to members of the business council,” he added. He emphasized the council’s desire to improve trade and investment exchange between the two countries and called upon Singaporeans to make use of the growing investment opportunities in the Kingdom, especially in energy, water, electricity, education and health sectors. Melaihi highlighted the council’s achievements within a short period of six years, including opening of direct flights between the two countries, issuance of five-year entry visas for Saudi businessmen and women, and marketing of Saudi projects in Singapore. “We are looking for greater trade and investment cooperation between Saudi Arabia and Singapore and we want to see more Singaporean companies operating in the Kingdom,” he added.
