Evaluation and project management
The implications of the cultural differences, and the accessibility to knowledge and resources, can be far-reaching and should never be underestimated.
Often we find in serving our clients that there are apparent grey areas in legislation or politic sentiment. The Cragus Group has multiple relationships and contacts within a variety of specialized firms and authorities in many jurisdictions, and is able to obtain clarity, and, at times, set new precedents.
The Middle East & Africa region is often a difficult environment to navigate for international corporations wishing to enter or simply do business, in the same way that firms within the region often have difficulty stepping out into other markets.
