50 years of exclusive business intelligence
Since its launch, MEED has tackled the breaking news issues head-on with ground-breaking exclusives shaping the Middle East.
- When the late Rafiq Hariri drew up plans to rebuild a war-shattered Lebanon, MEED met the prime minister and asked him to explain them.
- When Colonel Gaddafi unveiled the first part of his great manmade river, MEED took a front-row seat at the ceremony and quizzed the engineers.
- While US tanks were still rolling towards Baghdad in March 2003, MEED obtained plans from Washington that described how the US was hoping to rebuild Iraq.
- Three months before going public, MEED exclusively revealed DP World's IPO plans.
- Abdalla el-Badri exclusively announced Opec's potential move from US dollar to euro pricing to MEED.
Each time, our aim is to be not only the first with news and analysis but to be its most accurate and reliable provider.
The dedication made by HM King Abdullah of Jordan in 2007 demonstrates MEED's positive contribution to the Middle East for over 50 years.
