The latest foreign direct investment trends in the Middle East 

Our recent research on Middle East foreign direct investments (FDI) shows that projects into the region declined in 2020, and bounced back in 2021 with more than 25,000 jobs being created.

We have seen a number of innovative tech start-ups emerging across the Levant region, North Africa and the Gulf in recent years. Dubai hosted its World Expo last year and Qatar will be holding the Football World Cup in 2022 so all eyes will be on the GCC and the wider Middle Eastern region.
