If you are willing to expand your business venture, and invest in foreign markets, especially in MENA region, you need to take a serious approach towards intercultural competence. Expectations, norms and values of your local partner in a MENA country are crucial to comprehend and to strategically integrate in the business model. The stark diversity between MENA states’ cultures, norms and expectations might be a market barrier for less-prepared business corporations. At i-Strategic we know first hand how much gaining trust and respect counts towards a rewarding and successful business venture.
