Middle East economy "cheat sheet"?

Anonymous A asked on Aug 03, 2019 - 2 answers

Hi,

I have upcoming case interviews for Middle East offices. Does anybody know if there is anywhere a "cheat sheet"-type broad summary of the most important things somebody needs to know about the economy in the Middle East (mainly Saudi Arabia) in case the interviewer asks? I created one by myself and collected the data mainly from wikipedia, but interested to know if there are any other sources... Especially, I need to know which sectors make what percentage of the economy, as it is not 100% clear on wiki, and things I found by google search were contradictory...

Hello,

I suggest you read about KSA vision 2030 if you really want to know what is happening in KSA. All consulting companies have 70-80% business from Saudi where they work mostly with government agencies on achieving this 2030 vision.

But you don't really need all these for the interview and you are not expected to know this in detail. You can have a quick look at this document as well as read online about UAE in general that will help you to prepare for the question - WHY MIDDLE EAST?
