The Conference Board offers valuable insights into how the Middle East fits within the global economy. A major recent report - "Managing Beyond Oil" - reviews productivity in the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council, and outlines the implications for companies.

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.

Researchers from The Conference Board make regular presentations in the region about corporate governance, human resources and economic development issues. We provide the opportunity for companies to understand this complex, fast-changing region and will tailor individual programmes to suit specific corporate requirements.
