Hong Kong-based Radar Global has extended its reach into the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with the launch of an Arabic language division. The firm is also planning to launch a Spanish language operation in the middle of the year.
Radar Global was launched in 2010 by two former TNS Directors, Nicole Hessing and Grant Beuzeval, to provide multi-country project management and data collection services across Asia Pacific and beyond.
Commenting on the new service, Beuzeval explains: ‘In extending our reach into the MENA region we’re able to press ahead with expanding our emerging markets coverage by attracting and engaging extremely talented individuals in countries like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Jordan.’
Plans to launch a Spanish-language operation will further expand the firm’s coverage of the emerging markets into Latin America, adds Beuzeval, while strengthening the launch of its 2012 Emerging Market SME Business Confidence Monitor, which will run across 25 countries.
