The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is famous for its vast oil reserves, a quarter of the world’s total, and for the dominance of its economy by petroleum and associated industries. However, growing diversification of the Saudi economy has benefited some sectors. In agriculture the Kingdom is now self-sufficient in the production of milk, eggs, wheat, and other commodities. In addition, the country is a major exporter of fruits, vegetables, dairy products and fish and seafood to markets around the world.
