“We’re living through challenging times. But inherent in nearly all challenges are opportunities for renewal and transformation. The current economic crisis offers both the public and private sectors the chance to re-evaluate, to be more mindful and strategic about how to invest and more importantly where to divest,” Managing Director of Rahwah Enterprise, Sabrah Al Riyami, said.
“While expenditure cuts will most certainly provide short term relief, long term and tangible solutions will only come from better use of resources and elimination of waste. The question therefore is what can be done to address these challenges, and how can such challenges be a tool to lead positive changes?," he added.
