ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:24 Sep 03, 2010 Jkt 220001 Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (CS) is organizing an Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) trade mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, April 2–5, 2011. Led by a senior Department of Commerce official, the mission to Saudi Arabia is intended to include representatives from a variety of U.S. ICT industry suppliers and service providers. This trade mission will introduce suppliers of information technology (IT) and communication products and services to potential buyers and allow them to explore new business opportunities. Participating in an official U.S. industry delegation, rather than traveling to Saudi Arabia independently, will enhance the companies’ ability to secure meetings with potential buyers, distributors, partners and industry officials in Saudi Arabia. The mission will include appointments, briefings and a networking reception in Riyadh and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia’s primary ICT hubs. Trade mission participants will have the opportunity to interact with Commercial Service (CS) specialists covering the ICT industries to discuss industry developments, opportunities, and sales strategies. Commercial Setting Saudi Arabia is the largest IT market in the Arabian Gulf, estimated at $3.7 billion in 2010. The Communication and Information Technology Commission (CITC), the Saudi government regulatory agency, revealed that spending on ICT reached $5.96 billion in 2009, is expected to reach at $7 billion in 2010, and projected to grow to $9.8 billion by 2013. The impact of the global economic downturn on the country has been offset by business organizations’ growing interest in technology solutions, which boost efficiency and productivity. The Saudi market will continue to be a lucrative market for high-tech products and services over the next few years, supported by increased government spending to upgrade the country’s IT and communications infrastructure. Additionally, the government’s urban development initiative to establish new economic cities, airports, universities and other infrastructure projects will also stimulate growth in the ICT sector. Other major factors that will influence ICT sector growth include: • A young population, which is highly technology-oriented. According to the CIA World Factbook, the percentage of population under the age of 14 is 38%. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • One of the world’s lowest Internet penetration levels, providing for a good growth potential. The latest industry figures revealed that there were approximately ten million internet users as of the third quarter in 2009, about 34% of the total population, with a broadband penetration level of 8%. Industry sources expect sales of hardware to grow annually at an average of 7% over the next three years, while the market for IT services will grow an average of 9% during the same period. According to some estimates, per capita IT spending will reach $173 by 2014, as personal computer (PC) penetration rises to more than 30%. The number of PCs sold in 2009 was 2.1 million units, and is expected to grow to 7.2 million units in 2014. Industry Developments The Saudi government continues to prioritize the development and accessibility of the latest ICT products and services. One of the Saudi Shoura Council’s (Saudi Parliament) strategic objectives is to raise the IT sector’s contribution to GDP from the current 4% to 20% by 2020. The Council aims to raise broadband penetration from 8% to 23% by 2013. Despite the economic downturn in 2009, the Saudi government pressed ahead with its ambitious e-government plan and IT projects. The government launched a $3.1 billion plan to improve the education system, by equipping schools to keep pace with scientific and technological activities, which will include the establishment of a technologically integrated school system with the latest high-tech products and services available to both students and teachers. In line with the government vision to enhance the country’s IT standing and install a digital infrastructure, the Saudi market will present excellent opportunities for U.S. manufacturers/suppliers of: —DSL access switches, enabling multiservice transmission equipment. —Fiber-optic satellite links. —Wideband transceivers. —Network protocol software and systems. Additionally, there will be growth potential for PCs, notebook computers and IT accessories and services. Collectively, these product categories generated sales that reached $2.9 billion in 2009, including about $1 billion for IT services. Industry sources estimate that total spending on ICT products and services will reach $9.8 billion by 2013. Total U.S. goods exports to Saudi Arabia in 2009 were $10.8 billion.
