KPMG works with the defense government and defense industry ecosystem to support Saudi Arabia’s priorities, and to enable the ecosystem to meet the aspirations of Vision 2030 and related strategies.

The Saudi Arabian defense and security ecosystem entities, the broader defense community and those in the defense industry are operating in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.

This means both that there is a need to anticipate and respond to current and long-term changing threats but also to leverage the opportunities for example in laying the foundations of a military industry sector that can flourish and innovate and support government and frontline commands in meeting their changing needs.

KPMG’s Defense team understands this unique environment. We are committed to partnering with clients across the sector to co-design innovative responses that will contribute to their success now and into the future.

Our team work alongside you to combine our deep sector and military industry expertise, innovative approaches and critical thinking to deliver real results. We bring the latest insights from key allied countries (both traditional and new) to help solve problems in a practical way.

Our experienced professionals (including former senior military officers with significant relevant experience) are trusted by senior stakeholders on a variety of critical issues.
