We are on the brink of a seismic shift in the regional economy, given falling oil prices as well as the economic turmoil caused by COVID-19. The reduced dependency on fossil fuel revenues to bolster infrastructure development is subsequently creating favourable in-roads for Foreign Direct Investment and private companies to join forces with the government to build ambitious yet feasible projects.
It is only the beginning of a very exciting journey.
