  • J. W. WrightJr
  • Abdullah H. Albatel


This chapter deals with changes in emphasis towards ‘real’ sector productivity in the private sector of the economy while the Saudi government was planning for the 1985–95 period. It surveys both the growth and development of the private sector and the roles the government wishes that sector to play in the economy. It also touches on the roles the Kingdom’s financial institutions are expected to play in implementing the fourth and fifth Five Year Development Plans.
