With all the unrest across the Middle East is now a wise time to look overseas for those lucrative remediation contracts…?
We are presently reviewing our overseas marketing strategy. Why I hear you cry…!
Well this time last year I was in Bahrain looking at a £20M remediation contract and if the contract had proceeded according the required timescales, right now we could be sitting in a hotel room praying for our beloved government to come to our rescue…!
So should we continue to pursue overseas markets and expose ourselves to large financial risks whilst risking our own lives…? Is the pursuit of remediation contracts or indeed any other commercial opportunities worth this risk…? What advice are SDI and UKTI giving to UK companies seeking overseas contracts…?
Having enjoyed enquiries from China, India and Malaysia we’ve decided to pursue safer territories and let those with body guards, Hummers and AK47’s chase the work where the bullets fly.
