C-Suite Challenge™: Gulf Region COVID-19 Recovery

September 2020 | Research Report

The Conference Board conducted a special COVID-19 C-Suite Challenge™ survey in early June of 2020 of 1,316 C-suite executives, including 606 CEOs, from 44 countries and published the results in July 2020. This report is a Gulf Region COVID-19 special C-Suite Challenge report, which focuses on the Gulf region. It is published by The Conference Board Gulf Center in Kuwait. There were 49 C-suite executive participants from the Gulf region, including 16 CEOs, from Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates. The report highlights the breadth and the depth of the impact of the pandemic on Gulf businesses and changes to operations, talent, the economy, and society as a whole.
