GE will collaborate with the Saudi Arabian Industrial Investments Company - SAIIC - to develop further joint ventures to expand and localise industrial value chains with the intention of serving the global market. It is also partnering with Saudi Aramco, Cividale SpA, Middle East Propulsion Company, Saudi Industrial Property Authority, Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud foundation, Asharqia Chamber, National Industrial Clusters Development Programe, and more.

The new initiatives were announced by GE's Chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, during a visit to the Kingdom during which he underlined the company's commitment to Saudi Arabia's industrial goals.
