Ezine version of latest issue now available

The online version of the June 2018 issue of MEED Business Review is now available online.




Our latest edition explores issues related to oil investment, with a leading piece on shifting global oil dynamics and the renewed spate of exploration and capacity development within the Gulf.

This month's exclusive Big Interview is with Brendan Bechtel, chairman and CEO of Bechtel, who explains to MEED how the US' largest construction firm is helping Saudi Arabia implement its huge portfolio of transformative projects. Also interviewed in the June issue is Dur Hospitality CEO Badr al-Badr. The head of the Riyadh-based hotel firm tells MEED why there are exciting times ahead for the kingdom's hoteliers – with some deep-rooted changes to navigate.

The Market Focus section meanwhile takes an in-depth look at Egypt, where President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi’s election win has set the stage for further reform. This special report examines how Cairo will look to move forward with its power, infrastructure and railway project pipeline.

Our Gateway Gulf industry report meanwhile examines Manama's recent investor forum, where Bahrain showcased $26bn-worth of infrastructure projects needing private sector investment.

MEED Business Review also turns the spotlight on the fall-out from US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, with a special feature on the uncertainty clouding the oil and projects market as a result of Trump's move.

Contributors to the June issue include Lu’ay Khdeir, Mott MacDonald’s Middle East sector leader – who writes on the subject of tackling greenhouse gas emissions – and Oliver Wyman’s Volker Weber and Saji Sam, on restructuring the region's oil giants and why state oil firms must overhaul their management structure and corporate governance to compete on the global stage.

Last but not least, the Business Outlook pages provides an overview of the contracts and deals in the Middle East and North Africa's finance, oil and gas, construction, and power and water sectors.

We hope you enjoy the June issue of MEED Business Review.
