The 2011 surplus was the 2nd highest surplus in the decade reported. Global added in a study released earlier today, that "the healthy fiscal position has further facilitated the Saudi Arabian government to reduce its debt further from SR167bn in 2010 to SR135.5bn in 2011 which translates into a decline of 19%. The country's public debt position has improved significantly from the highs of 82% of GDP seen in 2003 to just 6.3% in 2011." Year-to-date, the Tadawul bourse has gained 15.30%.
