Saudi Arabia Water Report 2015
BMI View: We view Saudi Arabia's water sector as one of the most attractive in the region offeringnumerous opportunities to private sector participants. In particular, the continued growth in desalinationprojects and ongoing water reclamation developments offer significant potential.
