The Dammam Business Park Centre offers a sought-after address in the business heartland of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. Located in the Novotel Business Park, on the highway between Al-Khobar and Dammam, the centre is well positioned to benefit from the Dammam-Dhahran-Khobar area's position as a major hub for shipping, oil, commerce and industry. The King Abdul Aziz seaport is the largest on the Arabian Gulf and its import-export traffic is second only to Jeddah's port. In many ways, the Dammam area has evolved as the link between Saudi Arabia and the outside world, exporting the kingdom's products and importing its needs. Although much of the outgoing product is oil, Dammam has encouraged the growth of non-oil industries, with planned development of industrial complexes that are home to scores of factories with products that are sold at home and abroad.
