This article I find very encouraging, The Saudi’s don’t play games and have little tolerance “postponement and delay tactics” if your not ready to do business they don’t stick around. The fact that they seem to be moving forward with investment projects (according to this article anyway) again I find encouraging. Let’s hope Iraq doesn’t find a way to screw it up.IMO
