AFR BOSS magazine interview with Middle East expert Cynthia Dearin

AFR BOSS magazine interview with Middle East expert Cynthia Dearin

Cynthia Dearin was interviewed by the Australian Financial Review for AFR BOSS magazine, to talk about her experience living and doing business in the Middle East. Read on, as Cynthia discusses how challenging it is to go against the media's portrayal of the Middle East region and that it is a sprawling new market, eager to work with Australian business.

"It seems that we are missing out on opportunities because we have a certain view of things and we think it's too hard. But to be honest, it's no harder to do business in the Middle East than it is to do business in China" says Cynthia, talking about stereotypes, gender politics and business in the Middle East and North Africa region.
