Scopa Industries is in perfect alignment with Saudi Arabia’s newly released National Investment Strategy. Scopa Industries, as the Kingdom’s preeminent, private Defense Company, continues to develop partnerships with numerous US and Western defense companies to execute joint ventures, partnerships and co-production projects in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Scopa has attracted Western investment in the defense sector which directly supports the targets and objectives of the NIS. During the week of 18 October, Scopa’s Senior Advisor, LTG (Ret) Michael Barbero attended several select events to meet with both the Minister of Investment, H.E. Khalid Al-Falih, and the Chairman of ARAMCO/Governor of the Public Investment Fund, H.E. Yasir Al-Rumayyan. At these events, the breadth and scope of the National Investment Strategy was briefed and LTG Barbero had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with both dignitaries and explain how Scopa Industries aligned perfectly with the NIS. Scopa Industries will continue to develop long term partnerships and investment opportunities with our partners to directly contribute to the goal of the National Investment Strategy and to build organic Saudi capabilities in defense and security.
