Expansion in Saudi Arabia, India

As Saudi Arabia broadens the breadth of its tourist and hospitality industries, the UAE company, there will be a greater demand for projects and on-site medical care. Abu Dhabi-based Response Plus is working with several entities in the NEOM smart city and hoping to serve Saudi Aramco.

On June 28, it incorporated a company called Response Plus India, starting another phase of its expansion. RPM is committed to expansions in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Ethiopia, and India, which will undoubtedly produce positive financial outcomes for the healthcare provider in the second-half of this year and beyond. Response Plus is likely to continue to develop new strategic businesses and relationships while laying a strong foundation and regional presence.
