Saudi Arabia is striving to become a more attractive investment destination for multinational pharmaceutical companies through economic development projects that facilitate doing business. Furthermore, increased medical insurance coverage, a growing population, higher living standards, and the rising incidence of non-communicable diseases are all factors driving additional demand for pharmaceuticals within the country. The Kingdom has outlined an ambitious plan in the run up to 2030, with the goal of becoming a pharma hub for the entire Middle East region.
