The announcement was made after Ambassador of Ukraine to Saudi Arabia Vadym Vakhrushev held talks with 25 Saudi businessmen.
The parties discussed an increase in investment between Ukraine and Saudi Arabia in such sectors as agriculture, industry, real estate and tourism, according to the report.

According to participants in the talks, their meeting would help build confidence between the two countries and open up opportunities for closer cooperation.
Saudi businessmen are to visit Ukraine in the near future to assess investment opportunities. Ukrainian businessmen are also expected to visit Riyadh.
