As the GCC countries pursue economic diversification and sustainable growth plans, the need to digitize the freight transportation and logistics industry (T&L) is becoming increasingly important. At present, the T&L industry in the GCC, which is one of the key drivers of economic activity in the region, faces a combined threat of declining business revenue and outdated infrastructure, according to a recent study by management consultancy Strategy& Middle East (formerly Booz & Company), part of the PwC network.
Traditionally in the GCC, owning large pieces of land has been a means of safeguarding wealth for both governments and the private sector. However, these lands often lie dormant and unexploited. According to management consultancy Strategy& (formerly Booz & Company), part of the PwC network, recent growing economic pressure calls for a new approach in order to unlock these lands’ true value.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states show great promise for renewable energy deployment, according to a recent study by management consultancy Strategy& Middle East (formerly Booz & Company), part of the PwC network. To unlock this potential, GCC governments must develop a carefully planned framework and make careful decisions. The transition to a modern, renewables-based energy system is fraught with risk if governments take an ad hoc approach. Instead, they must act quickly and deliberately.
Report launched at the World Government Summit in Dubai, in conjunction with Strategy& and WPP, focuses on successful global examples that the region can adapt to influence behaviors and meet key national development objectives
