After two decades of relentless expansion, Gulf aviation is facing a challenge that it has not previously had to deal with, namely becoming cost efficient. The December issue of MEED Business Review puts aviation on the agenda, with a special report on the sector's new era of cooperation as airlines adapt to tougher market conditions.

Like the airline industry, the region's airport projects market is in transition as the focus shifts away from work that is finishing to schemes that are starting. The second part of this month's Agenda provides a market update, looking in particular at the $33bn upgrade of Dubai's Al-Maktoum International, which dwarfs all other airport projects.

Meanwhile, in Kuwait, the snap resignation of the government on 14 November came in the face of flagging economic results and slow project delivery. In an exclusive 14-page special report on Kuwait, Middle East business intelligence service MEED provides up-to-date analysis on the economic cracks in a market that, despite the sluggish activity, still holds promise.

The latest issue of MEED Business Review also includes a report on Islamic banks and finds deposit bond and sukuk growth continuing apace, albeit amid weaker profit growth.

Other must-read sections in the December edition include:
