John Key will arrive in Saudi Arabia today with the hope of getting high-level commitment from the new King to a free trade agreement with the Gulf states, which has been all but finalised since 2009.
Mr Key has been in the United Arab Emirates for the past two days and today’s stop will be the first visit by a New Zealand Prime Minister to Saudi Arabia.
Mr Key is scheduled to meet King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, who has been king since January after the death of his half-brother, King Abdullah.
Mr Key’s wife, Bronagh, will be wearing an abaya in Saudi Arabia, a robe-like dress covering all but the hands and head. A business delegation and Trade Negotiations Minister Tim Groser are also travelling with the Prime Minister.
