Middle East and North Africa Business Services
Global reach, local expertise
With a population of more than 177 million and growing, the Middle East is a significant emerging market. Between 2003 and 2011, foreign direct investment (FDI) in the region grew at a compound annual growth rate of 12.5%. Its solid fundamentals, strong demographics and government willingness to improve already concrete growth prospects create an abundance of opportunities for investment.
At EY, we have a dedicated Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Business Services team in the UK to assist MENA based companies with their overseas business interests, and UK companies seeking to explore investment opportunities within the region. Our team of experts have a deep understanding of the local markets and technical capabilities to deliver tailored services attuned to your needs.
Our 2012 Middle East Attractiveness Surveyhighlights the opportunities and risks of this fascinating market. It analyses the differences in opinion between investors who are already operating in the region and those who are not. Companies doing business in the Middle East are better educated about the internal environment, the diversification efforts and opportunities available and are very optimistic about the future.
This special edition is designed to help both business leaders in their investment decisions and governments in the Middle East to remove barriers to future growth.
