Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Gulf Cooperation Council countries enter late 2019/early 2020 in a global environment of dampened oil prices and easing monetary policy. The former will pressure government finances, while the latter will allow regional central banks to gradually reduce borrowing costs and support the private sector. The countries’ outlooks increasingly diverge, with Saudi Arabia showing some signs of recovery in its private sector, Kuwait presenting a moderate but reliable outlook, Oman and Bahrain under pressure to continue austerity efforts, and Qatar muddling through under the blockade. The UAE’s fundamentals are yet to show improvement, but the next year includes Expo 2020 and materialization of some of the Aby Dhabi stimulus program that MNCs should monitor. Executives should set 2020 targets considering key downside risks such as a further drop in oil prices, escalation of Gulf tensions, and spillover of US/China trade disputes.
