Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Gulf Cooperation Council countries are benefitting from the uptick in oil prices in mid-2019: some gradual positive signs are emerging from the proxy indicators for the private sector in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and Kuwait and Qatar’s economies are showing resilience. Furthermore, Saudi Arabia’s numerous government initiatives are entering their implementation phase in 2019, and Expo 2020 preparations are intensifying in the UAE. Executives must maintain a cautious approach to their H2 2019 and 2020 plans, however. Governments have set in place structures that will prevent them from overspending even when oil prices are high. Consumers and businesses are gradually recovering from the rise in costs and numerous regulatory changes from the last few years. Setting realistic targets and adapting sales strategy to shifting customer demands will be critical.
