Saudi Arabia’s trade surplus hits yearly high of $11bn in April amid surge in non-oil exports

 It sounds like Saudi Arabia's efforts to diversify its economy are showing some promising results, especially with the surge in non-oil exports. The increase in non-oil shipments and the decrease in oil exports are steps in the right direction for achieving a more balanced economic structure. It's interesting to note that plastics, rubber, chemical products, machinery, electrical equipment, and parts are significant components of both exports and imports, indicating a level of industrial and manufacturing activity.

China's prominence as both a major export destination and a source of imports for Saudi Arabia reflects the depth of their trade relationship. The fact that imports are mainly concentrated through key entry points like ports and airports gives a clear picture of the logistical pathways for trade into the country.

It's essential for countries like Saudi Arabia to reduce their reliance on oil exports and diversify their economic base to ensure long-term stability and growth. These statistics provide a snapshot of the progress being made in that direction.
