After another week of high drama in the ongoing dispute between Qatar and its GCC neighbours and it is becoming clear that the GCC crisis is not going to be resolved any time soon.

Doha’s rejection of the demands made by Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain in order for them to lift their diplomatic and trade blockade on Qatar by the 3 July has escalated tensions further and left businesses unclear about how to respond.

The blockading countries have said the current diplomatic and trade restrictions will remain in place and have warned of potential new sanctions. 

MEED Live this Thursday will look at the latest developments in a dispute that is redrawing the region’s political landscape, and discuss what it means for business in the region.

Take part in a live-streamed discussion with the MEED team and have your questions answered this Thursday at 13:00 (GST).

The live-streamed discussion is available exclusively to MEED subscribers and will examine the impact of the blockade on business in Qatar. It will consider the possible next steps in the dispute and what the consequences for the region might be. And it will discuss what approach businesses should adopt in response to the crisis.
