Many consider the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region as one of the most important emerging parts of the world economy in the 21st century. MENA is strategically vital as it produces the majority of the world’s oil. However, despite the region’s oil, most MENA countries score lower on Human Development Index (HDI) world ranking, with GDP, productivity and investment rates well below the global average. It is, therefore, becoming widely accepted that the dominant economic model of the region – based on the public sector, oil incomes and workers’ remittances – is not up to the challenges of modern globalisation and the needs of advanced knowledge-based societies.

Given the apparently contradictory needs of economic growth and environmental conservation, it comes as no surprise that knowledge management, innovation and sustainable development (SD) have had such a powerful influence in contemporary discussions on the future of the region.” text_color=”#000000″][vc_empty_space height=”80px”][mkdf_elements_holder holder_full_height=”no” number_of_columns=”four-columns” switch_to_one_column=”” alignment_one_column=””][mkdf_elements_holder_item item_padding=”0px 0% 0px 26%” item_padding_680_768=”0px 13% 50px” item_padding_680=”0px 5% 50px 0%”][mkdf_icon_with_text type=”icon-top” icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=”” title_tag=”h2″ text_font=”yes” box=”yes” custom_icon=”3984″ title=”1534″ text=”Happy clients” link=”#” title_font_size=”55″][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][mkdf_elements_holder_item item_padding=”0px 8% 0px 17%” item_padding_680_768=”0px 13% 50px” item_padding_680=”0px 5% 50px 0%”][mkdf_icon_with_text type=”icon-top” icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=”” title_tag=”h2″ text_font=”yes” box=”yes” custom_icon=”4018″ title=”134″ text=”Success Events” link=”#” title_font_size=”55″][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][mkdf_elements_holder_item item_padding=”0px 17% 0px 8%” item_padding_680_768=”0px 13% 50px” item_padding_680=”0px 5% 50px 0%”][mkdf_icon_with_text type=”icon-top” icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=”” title_tag=”h2″ text_font=”yes” box=”yes” custom_icon=”4021″ title=”157″ text=”business strategies” link=”#” title_font_size=”55″][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][mkdf_elements_holder_item item_padding=”0px 26% 0px 0%” item_padding_680_768=”0px 13%” item_padding_680=”0px 5% 0px 0%”][mkdf_icon_with_text type=”icon-top” icon_pack=”font_awesome” fa_icon=”” title_tag=”h2″ text_font=”yes” box=”yes” custom_icon=”4022″ title=”167″ text=”Projects Plans” link=”#” title_font_size=”55″][/mkdf_elements_holder_item][/mkdf_elements_holder][vc_empty_space height=”80px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row equal_height=”yes” row_content_width=”grid” css=”.vc_custom_1496660590513{margin-top: 0px !important;margin-right: 0px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;margin-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column][mkdf_section_title text_alignment=”” title_tag=”” title_mark=”dot” title_separator=”yes” title=”Upcoming Events”][vc_empty_space height=”60px”][fat_event id=”36172″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_text_aligment=”left” css=”.vc_custom_1497519300489{padding-top: 120px !important;padding-bottom: 100px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1496672984027{padding-right: 25px !important;padding-left: 25px !important;}”][mkdf_section_title text_alignment=”” title_tag=”” title_mark=”dot” title_separator=”yes” title=”Our Network”][vc_empty_space height=”80px”][vc_column_text]
