Saudi's have finally open their gates to Investors outside of Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Market has a Market cap of over 500 Billion, which is more than 3 times the size of Qatars SE, Making it the largest in the Middle East.
Saudi's are very selective about who they do business with and so they do not allow most outsiders to invest in their market either. This is due to many rules that have been placed to screen potential investors and bring the "right" kind of money int the market.
That being said, It is still a long way before they will get the enough traction to keep the economy going, but it certainly is a start.
I agree - yes, we've made the news for one day then it's gone out the focus. It didn't create the effect we've all expected so..something tells me that regulations need to improved or be even better - removed
