Saudi Arabia

As the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is transferring to a new phase relying on human resources, diversification of income sources and self-sufficiency, and to fulfill the promise of His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz - the Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister - to localize half of the military expenditure by 2030, Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI) has been founded in May 2017 as a national entity concerned with developing and supporting military industries in the Kingdom, and enhancing its self-sufficiency. SAMI will be one of the major outcomes of Vision 2030 that requires the activation of new sectors and the opening of local investment prospects. Since its establishment in 2017, SAMI has achieved several major milestones in order to contribute to achieving self–sufficiency in the Saudi military industries through the cutting-edge technologies and the best national talents.
