The Middle East Market

The MENA region is one of incredible diversity. With a population of over 400 million in 22 countries the juxtapositions on politics, history, religion, culture and economic fortunes are vast and well known. Older more traditional economies such as that of Egypt now sit alongside the relatively new emerging economies established on the back of crude oil and natural gas production. Whilst the GCC states have amassed considerable fortunes from the ‘black gold’ (the region holds six out ten countries with the largest proven oil reserves), it is the imagination and ambition to diversify their economies that has caught global attention.  This, coupled with relative political stability and economic reform, has led to considerable foreign interest, both in terms of financial and human capital investment.

I am challenged on a daily basis by the wider team and middle management and everybody seems to want something from me. The working day feels like a battlefield as I fight off one attack after another. While I realise this is part of the job, how can I get better at fending off issues before they arise and provide better solutions to ongoing disputes? AD, Abu Dhabi
