How Ramadan Will Affect Business Operations in Saudi

How Ramadan Will Affect Business Operations in Saudi

Proven SA explains the do’s and don’ts of working in Saudi Arabia during Ramadan.

Proven Saudi Arabia, the leading business support service provider for Saudi Arabia, recognises that although Saudi Arabia is an attractive market for foreign investment, it can be a difficult path to navigate. As Ramadan approaches, Proven advises professionals who are working in Saudi Arabia to prepare for a slight shift in business practices and a potential slowdown in some processes. However, Proven has reported that certain sectors thrive during Ramadan, such as retail and F&B who, in 2016, saw up to a 25% increase in sales over the holy month. With the announcement of Vision 2030 and the ambitious goals to diversify the economy, business practices are likely not to see the summer slowdown as they have done in the previous years.

Ramadan is a time of fasting, focusing on prayers and being charitable and it is also a time of celebrating and connecting with friends and family. Ramadan offers a time for businesses to connect with their clientele as the holy month encourages a sense of community and belonging. For foreigners visiting the Kingdom, it is important to be respectful to the religious holiday and aware of customary etiquette. Professionals working in KSA during the holy month should be prepared for some changes and allow for flexibility to their usual business practices.
