Regional Profile – Middle East Team Building

A Quick Glimpse at the Middle East

Since the start of the millennium, the Middle East has undergone more change, transformation and growth than just about any other region on the planet.

In the Middle East, themes of transformation and growth are underscored through cultural elements and settings like the desert, mountains, and beaches.

The crisis could, still, offer an opportunity to engage in a comprehensive reform agenda and address some of the region’s underlying structural issues (decentralisation, private sector development, social protection), design a new growth model (economic diversification, health and education spending, industrial innovation and participation in regional value chains), building on all segments of the society.
