Webinar | China’s ascendancy in the Gulf


Dragonfly is hosting a webinar looking at Chinese influence in the Gulf and its implications for Western business operations and interests there.

China’s economic clout in the Gulf will probably continue to grow over the next few years. This is likely to challenge Western primacy – especially economic – in the region. But will the West remain the dominant security provider? And will regional governments increasingly take diplomatic matters into their own hands – and if so, to what extent? 

In this webinar, we will explore: 

  • Whether China will replace the US in regional security and diplomacy
  • The threats Beijing’s tech expansion poses to Western interests 
  • Russia’s future role in regional affairs
  • Implications for Western businesses in the Middle East

The webinar will take place on Thursday, 27 July 2023 at 1400hrs London / 1500hrs Paris / 1700hrs Dubai / 0900hrs New York. There will also be an opportunity for you to pose questions to our panel.
