TATV Spotlight: BAE Systems on 50 years in Saudi Arabia

BAE Systems has been operating in Saudi Arabia for more than half a century and worked side-by-side with the Kingdom's government introducing many of the practices that are now embedded within Vision 2030.

Alan Peaford caught up with BAE's Andrew Kennedy at the recent World Defense Show in Riyadh and asks him about that history and what it means now for future plans in Saudi Arabia, and what the benefits are in  key drivers such as diversity, knowledge-transfer and training.
