Favourite place in UAE: Al Qudra cycle track – but not during the summer months!

Interesting project that you have worked on: Helping more Scottish companies penetrate Middle Eastern markets

Piece of advice for doing business in the UAE: There are dozens of ways to source market intelligence about the UAE – use them all and don’t get hung-up on buying quality insights – such as OCO can provide!
