Sadara is a relevant and meaningful contributor to the Saudi Arabian economic agenda. As a standalone enterprise, Sadara represents the largest foreign direct investment in the Saudi petrochemical industry.
Once fully operational, Sadara shall contribute significantly to the country's industrial diversification by providing additional value chains within both the Sadara complex and the industrial "Plaschem Park" currently being developed in conjunction with the Royal Commission for Jubail & Yanbu. The diversity of the products from Sadara will complement the existing materials available in Jubail-I and II to attract additional foreign direct investment and diversification of Saudi Arabia's economic base. Ultimately, Sadara is an active contributor to Saudi Arabia’s strategy to become not only a strategic chemicals and plastics producer, but also a hub for future downstream industrialization.
Sadara and related investments are expected to generate thousands of direct and indirect employment opportunities. Sadara has already recruited over 500 apprentices who are now undergoing comprehensive and competitive manufacturing and engineering training programs, in state-of-the-art training centers both inside and outside of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
