Strategic Planning for Growth

In recent years, countries in the Gulf Region have sought to diversify their economy away from oil production to develop other export sectors. Seeking to accelerate its diversification and economic growth, a national export credit agency engaged International Financial Consulting Ltd. to develop a new strategic plan focused on diversification. We assessed challenges, which had both internal and external facets, such as the incorporation of the national investment fund as a new shareholder and regional geopolitical instability. We facilitated individual and group discussions with the agency's management and key commercial banks and private credit insurers. The project culminated in a strategic planning workshop where we presented our findings to the agency, laying out clear goals, actions, and metrics for measuring progress.
