The speed at which transportation options and infrastructure requirements are developing across emerging markets is both exciting and challenging. Nowhere is this more true than in the MENA region, where demands on geographic connectivity continue to escalate across a multitude of increasingly efficient travel hubs and ever-more cosmopolitan cities facing exponential pressures of population growth. Passenger volumes continue to rise, airlines continue to invest and rail and road networks continue to expand, demonstrating alongside state-of-the-art seaports and rapidly developing cities that transportation industries and infrastructure projects play an essential role in the region’s surge in global interconnectivity and importance within the world economy.

Entities operating within the transportation and infrastructure development sectors require executives who understand both local requirements and global best practices, who possess the necessary dynamic leadership capabilities to achieve organizational success amidst a rapidly changing environment, and who will be equipped to successfully meet the challenges of defining the new frontiers of their sub-industry’s development.
