Saudi Arabia, an oil based economy possesses more than a quarter of global oil reserves and has been the largest oil producer for over half a century. Oil exports generate total revenue for the nation''s development expenditure in its entirety. But lately Saudi Arabia has acknowledged that the objective of long term economic development cannot be attained by depending on a single source of revenue. Therefore, Saudi Arabia embarked upon a long term economic development planning to reduce this dependence on a single export commodity and to accelerate structural diversification. Structural diversification has been one of the dominant objectives of all the eight development plans. Saudi Arabia has aggressively attempted privatization in its industrialization process in this respect. Further, in this pursuit Saudi Arabia joined the WTO and opened its economy to ease inflow of investments from abroad.

Saudi Arabia’s historical position as the cradle of Islam; a religion accepted by more than a billion people in the world coupled with its vast oil resources has made it one of the influential players in international affairs. This book seeks to examine how this important country relates to the outside world especially with regard to the Sub-Saharan Africa a Sub-region that is located just across the Sea from Saudi Arabia and a considerable number of whose inhabitants are followers of the Islamic faith. In order to bring out the dynamics at play in Saudi’s relations with Sub-Sahara Africa, the author chose a case study of Uganda a country that has witnessed, at different periods in time, both cordial and cold relations with Saudi Arabia. The book further examines the Amin factor in Saudi –Uganda relations. The book may be useful to, among others, policy makers in foreign policy matters, those who are interested on doing business with Saudi Arabia as well as to ordinary readers that are curious to know something about the Saudi society, the issues that endeared Idi Amin to Saudi Arabia and the relationship between Saudi Arabia and Uganda after Idi Amin.
Due to concerns about the issue of scarcity of water, soaring food prices, population growth, high unemployment, environmental degradation, and reductions in arable land, combined with the effects of urbanization, economic development and security concerns, the Saudi government introduced combative measures from self-sufficiency to deflationary policy in wheat production. My study set out to demonstrate that these measures, which were aimed at ensuring food security, alleviating poverty, and promoting economic growth, were actually having a negative effect on many aspects of agriculture in Saudi Arabia, including the downsizing of huge farms; closure of small agricultural companies; and bankruptcy of some businesses trading in related areas such as agricultural machinery and animal health. The objectives were to analyse Saudi Arabian Government policies, assess the impact and diversity, investigate sustainability, of cultural development strategies in Saudi Arabia and investigate the attitudes and opinions on CSR in Saudi Arabia.

Term “reform” or “reformation” is not new for Saudi society. Since its formation these terms are continuously being used. The transformation of Arabian Peninsula’s geographic arrangement into modern state of Saudi Arabia itself is the result of socio-religious reform movement of Wahhabism. Later it passed through many reformation phases in the context of Pan Arabism, rising religious militancy after Iranian Revolution, falling oil prices in different global political scenarios, Persian Gulf War, and finally the worst among all, events of September 11, 2001. Before 9/11 some reformed socio-political and religious parameters started changing a stubborn and orthodox sphere into comparatively modernize and flexible environment.
