Chapter 7 in A Guide to the Saudi Arabian Economy, 1984, pp 126-140 from Palgrave Macmillan
Abstract Arising partly from the geographical and climatic differences there are substantial variations between regions in their reliance upon both agriculture and industry; further disaggregation also reveals that the industrial structure within each region shows little commonality. Clearly the fact that oil resources are concentrated in the Eastern Region dictates the breakdown between the oil and non-oil sectors by region. This is reflected in regional Gross Domestic Product, which indicates that 90 per cent of value-added in the Eastern Region resulted from the oil sector in 1396/7; less than 1 per cent of value-added in each of the other regions came from the oil sector.1
