The new Saudi Investment Law will be issued soon, representing a legislative roadmap for investors in the Kingdom, Al Eqtisadiah Newspaper cited Deputy Minister of Investment for Policies and Legislation Baker Al Haboob as saying.


The new law would be a systematic tool to guarantee rights and govern procedures, in accordance with leading international practices, the top government official added.


Many initiatives were launched as part of the Saudi National Investment Strategy, in a bid to develop the legislative and regulatory environment in the Kingdom, three of which were aimed at strengthening the local judicial environment. Further, seven others were rolled out to develop the legislative environment, Al Haboob indicated.
