Goldman Resumes Push to Drum Up Business in Saudi Arabia

Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s David Solomon is on his first trip to Saudi Arabia as chief executive officer, the latest sign that Wall Street’s skittishness about doing business with the kingdom is fast becoming a thing of the past.

Solomon, who became the firm’s CEO in October, is making a renewed effort to strengthen business ties in the country. He’s the first head of a global U.S. bank known to have traveled to the country since an international furor erupted last year over the murder of columnist Jamal Khashoggi.
