As the Crown Prince prepares to move onto the United States, huge deals have been announced between the kingdom and the UK
Saudi Arabia and UK sign deals worth more than $2 billion
Britain and Saudi Arabia signed commercial deals worth more than $2 billion during Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's visit to London which ended on Friday, a joint statement said, without providing details.
At the start of the trip, the countries set themselves a $90 billion trade and investment target for the coming years, with London looking for new post-Brexit markets for its services sector, and Prince Mohammed seeking to convince wary investors his country is a tolerant and modernising place.
The Kingdom is also exploring up to $89 billion in fresh investments in the UK.
The two countries also agreed a long-anticipated deal for 48 Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets, worth some $6.9 Billion. The jets are munufactured by British company BAe systems.
BAe’s chief executive Charles Woodburn said “We are committed to supporting the kingdom as it modernises the Saudi Armed Forces”.
