Saudi companies have been ordered to exclude Dutch firms from future projects over an anti-Islamic stunt by a far-right Dutch politician, in a royal decree made public by the Mecca chamber of commerce.Not that the Dutch have much to lose, IMO. Saudi Arabia continues to be a dictatorship with oppressive, racist, anti-semitic policies, and if those Dutch companies were smart, they wouldn't be seeking to make money at all costs.
The decree bans “Dutch firms from taking part in future projects in the kingdom, whether directly or through sub-contracting,” according to a chamber circular seen by AFP on Saturday.
It also reduces to a minimum the number of visas “for Dutch companies and investors who are not part of vital projects in the kingdom”.
And it orders an end to visits by trade delegations between the two countries.
