The Middle East, for long considered a turbulent market, is now emerging as a hub of economic growth and investor confidence. Nations across the Gulf have vigorously invested in diversifying their economies and strengthening regulatory frameworks – creating an attractive climate for foreign companies.
With efforts like Saudi Vision 2030, the UAE’s focus on tourism and technology, Qatar’s FIFA World Cup 2022, EXPO 2020 in Dubai, and progressive reforms, perceptions of risk in the Middle East market need recalibration.
The numbers speak for themselves: according to IMF, the regional economy is set to grow by 5% in 2022. Consumer spending is rising, infrastructure booms and digital transformation initiatives abound across sectors. Oil wealth is being channelled into ground-breaking new industries.
For global businesses, it’s time to explore the potential of the world’s fastest-growing region. Opportunities exist across manufacturing, real estate, tourism, technology and an array of sectors. And rapidly changing demographics have created a young, aspirational consumer class hungry for products and innovations.
