September 2000

As they open and diversify, the economies of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Yemen provide many exciting trade and investment opportunities for Australian exporters and investors. Their need to generate employment for their young, rapidly growing populations, upgrade infrastructure and achieve more robust, non-oil driven growth drives reforms.

Australia's trade and investment with the Gulf economies is growing rapidly. This in-depth report helps Australian business access Gulf markets by analysing the region's current economic, trade and investment policies, assessing recent and projected economic performance, exploring the unfamiliar business environment and highlighting prospective sectoral opportunities for Australian exporters and investors.

"Accessing Middle East Growth is a highly valuable and professional presentation of the major opportunities for Australian business in the Middle East … an excellent report."

The Rt Hon Sir Malcolm Rifkind, KCMG, QC, Director, International Strategy, BHP Petroleum Ltd, former British Foreign Secretary.

"For companies considering entry into the … Middle East, the report provides an excellent insight into 'what makes the place tick' … essential reading for any Australian company with a serious commitment to international trade."

Syd Giller, President, Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc
