Assessing the risks of working in the Middle East

With many businesses looking ahead to the prospect of the end of the pandemic and an economic rebound, the opportunity of overseas work is becoming more attractive. However, the pace of recovery will be varied across regions and in Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the dynamics of the pandemic will interact with underlying, structural economic, social and demographic trends and a complex geopolitical environment to produce a challenging landscape for businesses to navigate.

To help companies looking to invest in the Middle East region, British Expertise International has organised an online event on 29 April with specialist risk consultancy Control Risks to offer its views on the major trends shaping the risk environment for businesses and how these trends will unfold in the MENA region. Three of their MENA-based political risk analysts will speak at the event to provide a regional perspective on these issues. Infrastructure Intelligence can attend the event for free using the special booking code listed below.

Issues to be covered at the event, Risk Mapping in the Middle East, will include analysis of political, regulatory, operational and security risks in North Africa for clients across different sectors. Also covered will be project-specific work such as stakeholder mappings, security threat assessments, market-entry assessments and benchmarking exercises. The experts from Control Risks will also examine political, operational and security developments in Iran and Iraq and other Middle Eastern and North African countries.

This online event is a must-attend for UK businesses looking to invest in the Middle East region.
