- Arab News interview on the Gulf's recent transformation
An audit of the Gulf's transformation
Grant Thornton is riding just outside the leading pack of the Big Four accounting and consulting giants. When Arab News interviewed Hisham Farouk, CEO of Grant Thornton in the UAE, he confirmed that’s exactly how the firm likes it.
While the Big Four have been getting increasingly embroiled in battles with regulators over perceived conflicts of interest and other abuses of the auditing system, Grant Thornton is happy to leave them to it.
Read the full interview to understand why the firm holds this view, how Hisham feels about the recent regional transformation, what Dubai can expect in 2019 from Expo 2020; and what he believes is valuable for Saudi's Vision 2030 and ultimately the region in general in creating a vibrant future.
