The Middle East Business Leaders' Council, formed in 1999, convenes local business leaders who are Associates of The Conference Board with representatives of multinational enterprises to discuss regional issues.

We provide the opportunity for companies to understand this complex, fast-changing region and will tailor individual programmes to suit specific corporate requirements.
