Saudi Arabia is a strategic focus region for LTIMindtree due to its immense potential for IT and digital services. We have entered a strategic partnership with Aramco Digital to form a joint venture that will serve as the regional hub for IT and Digital Transformation Services in the MENA region and create jobs and promote local content. This joint venture will cater to the Energy, Financial, Public Services, Giga Projects, and Travel & Hospitality sectors. We also plan to establish multiple delivery centers across KSA, starting in Riyadh and Dhahran, focused on innovation and capacity building in various IT segments. 

This June, we are inaugurating our regional headquarters in Riyadh. This is in alignment with the KSA government’s Regional Headquarters Program and is a key milestone towards supporting, managing, and directing our regional strategic business initiatives. It also aligns with KSA’s wider vision for 2030, and its strategy for economic diversification, development, and growth.
