Earlier this year, we released Now or Never, KPMG's 2016 Global CEO Outlook, surveying almost 1,300 CEOs from some of the world’s largest organizations on their plans and concerns over the next three years. 

Now we have spoken to CEOs of some of the UAE’s leading organizations, as well as leaders of emerging businesses, to better understand their views of the forces and opportunities shaping the business they lead and how they plan to respond to these challenges.  

In this report, KPMG experts analyze these trends and provide a UAE perspective to help you deliver results today and also anticipate the changes you may have to make to be successful in the future.

Key findings:

  • 91 percent of UAE CEOs surveyed – compared to 89 percent of global CEOs - are expecting their organizations to grow over the next three years
  • 59 percent of UAE CEOs surveyed see organic growth as the most likely source of increasing economic success
  • 65 percent percent of UAE CEOs indicate revenue has increased over the last three financial years
  • 76 percent of UAE CEOs surveyed – compared to 41 percent of global CEOs – expect their organizations to be significantly different in three years
  • Developing new products was selected as a top investment area over the next three years by 13 percent of surveyed CEOs
  • 88 percent of UAE CEOs surveyed believe that a persistently low oil price could have strong implications for the UAE economy
