The Mid­dle East’s most pow­er­ful busi­ness voices pre­dict the year ahead

Arabian Business English - - FRONT PAGE -

THE NEXT 12 MONTHS COULD PROVE TO be the most vi­tal for decades to come. From Brexit in the UK, and po­lit­i­cal chal­lenges in the Mid­dle East, to slow­ing out­put in China and fears over US eq­uity mar­kets, the jury is out on whether 2019 will be a year of growth or fear. In a spe­cial is­sue of Ara­bian Busi­ness, the re­gion’s most in­flu­en­tial voices lay out their pro­jec­tions for what lies in store.

But one could ar­gue that the Mid­dle East is pre­pared for any even­tu­al­i­ties. It has grown ac­cus­tomed to tak­ing hits in prop­erty, con­struc­tion and tourism, only to rise back big­ger and bet­ter. Pre­dic­tions aside, the re­gion has proven it­self ca­pa­ble of with­stand­ing even the harsh­est of po­lit­i­cal and busi­ness cli­mates, all the while mak­ing its mark on the global stage.
