The economic transformation in the Gulf is forcing governments to shift their approach to the economy. Opening up markets, greater competition and taxes are on the agenda and will change the way businesses operate in the region. Public-Private Partnerships should ensure a smooth shift from government managed companies to privately owned ones. This increased cooperation between governments and the private sector will offer challenges on the management side, but will also provide opportunities to grow the economy. How are today’s business relationships changing? What do partnerships mean for a company’s development? How do the politics of business and the business of politics affect collaboration?
