Oped looks at Israel learning from UAE business norms
An oped by Arona Maskil at Israel HaYom looks at business and culture norms in the UAE and how Israelis should learn about the culture and local business methods as ties rapidly increased in the wake of the Abraham Accords. Arona Maskil is a cross-cultural business consultant, with extensive experience in Israeli and UAE business culture and the founder of TrainingCQ.

The Emiratis prefer to do business with people they know and like, hence building relationships takes time and requires long-term perspective and commitment on your side." Read the full piece here.
