Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Executives will be operating in a slow-growth but more stable economic environment in the Gulf Cooperation Council’s major economies in 2019. In 2019, the GCC markets will diverge in their pace of reform implementation. The lack of major tax hikes and subsidy cuts in Saudi Arabia and the UAE will ease some of the pressure on the private sector, but Saudization regulations will remain acute and create operational challenges for MNCs. Kuwait will likely be a more stable opportunity in the short term, as we the country also has the financial buffers to delay major reforms and accelerate its privatization program. On the other hand, the increasing urgency of fiscal consolidation will pressure the private sector in Oman and Bahrain.
