                                                 Saudi Arabia Business Culture 

                                                                 Doing Business in Saudi Arabia 

There are a great many differences in the business culture between the western world and places like Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia business culture, religion is actually a big deal, and the working day is actually punctuated with prayer and religious observance. What this ultimately means is that you are going to need to have a good working knowledge of business customs and business culture in the area before you bring your business to this new world. The better your understanding of Saudi Arabia culture and business etiquette, the more successful you are likely to be in your business dealings here.

                                                                      Unique Business Culture

In Saudi Arabia business culture it is important to understand that observing religious rituals is going to take precedence over everything else. Your Saudi Arabia contacts are going to have deep conviction and you are going to need to be open minded and most of all respectful when it comes to working with them. When you are in their world, you are going to need to be willing to follow their customs and traditions, because business culture in Saudi Arabia is completely unique to business culture in the United States and similar nations.

                                                                       The Saudi Family Unit

Another big difference when it comes to Saudi Arabia business culture is that most businesses in Saudi Arabia are actually built around the family unit. All key employees within a company are likely to come from the same family. The idea of giving away an important position to someone outside of the family is virtually unheard of, because nothing is more important than family trust in this culture. Family relationships and loyalty are two very important concepts when it comes to business culture and business etiquette in this nation. 
                                                                 Saudi Arabian Communication

Communication is also different here, and you are likely to find that your Saudi Arabian contacts will communicate openly with you and expect the same from you. They may ask you seemingly prying questions about your family, your home life, your wealth and your religious convictions, and you should answer as honestly as you can, or come up with your own questions. Having a translator will make things go more smoothly in the communication department.
