The CISI’s regional operations hub in the UAE has continued to show strong growth, driven by partnerships with regulatory authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Palestine, Kuwait, and Lebanon. The mix of Arabic and English qualifications continues to hold appeal for the Middle East as the markets develop. Working with our local office, we also have an established National Advisory Council in the UAE which plays a vital role in advising the Institute on national education and local continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. It is headed by Richard Stockdale, Chartered FCSI, Trustee and Director of the CISI and President of the CISI's UAE Regional Board.
