The Middle East is a powerhouse of innovation and economic activity, attracting global businesses who are keen to expand into this region.
However, like many fast-growing regions, the Middle East is susceptible to corruption. Kroll's most recent corruption survey for 2022 found that 68% of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) executives and 56% of United Arab Emirates (UAE) executives surveyed were concerned that bribery and corruption risks in these jurisdictions are likely to increase “slightly” or “significantly” over the next 6-12 months.
In this webcast, A Spotlight On... the UAE and Saudi Arabia, Kroll experts will be joined by local business leaders to discuss the issue of corruption from a business perspective.
The discussion will explore why corruption risk is increasing, how authorities are tackling the issue and what businesses need to be thinking about to mitigate risk, as they prepare to navigate a post-pandemic commercial environment and a return to relative normality.
