Culture Tourism and Recreation 

The culture of Saudi Arabia is a rich one that has been shaped by its Islamic heritage, its historical role as an ancient trade center, and its Bedouin traditions. Saudi society has experienced tremendous development over the past several decades.
Economy and Infrastructure

Saudi Arabia’s free market economy has undergone remarkable changes in a relatively short period of time. It has evolved from a basic agricultural society into a regional and global economic power with a modern infrastructure.
Education and Healthcare

Saudi Arabia’s education system has gone through an astonishing transformation.  When the modern Kingdom was established in 1932, education was available to very few people, mostly the children of wealthy families living in the major cities.
History and Government

Saudi Arabia traces its roots back to the earliest civilizations of the Arabian Peninsula. Over the centuries, the peninsula has played an important role in history as an ancient trade center and as the birthplace of Islam, one of the world’s major monotheistic religions.
Saudi - U.S. Relations

Relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States are based upon mutual respect and common interests – economic, political, technological and social. Begun nearly a century ago, the Saudi-US friendship has weathered many storms, including numerous regional and global conflicts and crises, and gone from strength to strength.
