The GCC Consulting Market In 2018Consulting Market Programme 2018
For many firms in the GCC, 2017 was the best year for some time as governments advanced their plans to prepare their economies for the post-oil era.
Saudi Arabia’s importance to the health of the GCC consulting market in the past year is impossible to overemphasize. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman forged ambitious, modernising reforms and accelerated the implementation of the National Transformation Plan, contributing heavily to an increase in consulting demand. Alongside this, the implementation of VAT was another key driver in the region.
2017 was not without challenge, however, with some suggesting that it was the most unpredictable year since 2011. Diplomatic tensions with Qatar, when combined with broader regional political and economic uncertainty, contributed to a sense of nervousness among many consulting leaders.
