Middle East and North Africa (MENA) economies will enter a phase of recovery in 2018, so firms need to prepare their teams for a new business environment in the region.
Oil-exporting countries will stabilize from the initial shock of the oil price collapse, Egypt will have implemented its most difficult reforms, and Levant countries will see timid but important improvements to their security outlooks. Meanwhile, governments across the region will remain committed to reform plans, increasing operating costs in the short term and creating fluctuations in customers’ purchasing behavior.
Companies’ ongoing focus on the region will intensify competition amid slower economic growth rates. Firms must re-evaluate their strategy based on updated long-term assumptions about the market and update their talent and skills management strategy to respond to increased volatility in cost assumptions and customers’ changing purchasing behavior
