INTERVIEW WITH NADIA AL DOSSARY “HAVE A FIRM GOAL IN LIFE”

ALKHOBAR — Last month the British Trade Office in Alkhobar hosted an evening networking event targeting Eastern Province businesswomen. The event featured two corporate executives working in Saudi Arabia in fields that have traditionally been reserved for men. Australian Ines Scotland, director of Bariq Mining Ltd., spoke first. She discussed her 17-year career in the mining industry and the experiences she has had in her executive position since coming to Saudi Arabia. She stated that being a woman hadn’t hindered her business activities in Saudi Arabia. Instead, her gender has opened many doors and she has “met many senior people in the Kingdom, including the king.”
