ABOUT

Who Are We?

Information leads to knowledge. Knowledge is Power

Information International is a leading Beirut-based research consultancy firm, founded with the awareness that a vacuum exists in the field of survey research, database collection and analysis in the Arab World and particularly the Near East and Arabian Peninsula.
We have served the regional market since 1995 and have conducted major feasibility studies and research projects, including development and needs assessment in health, education, agriculture, infrastructure facilities, demographic and socio-economic studies, including project evaluations and impact assessments. We have also established a department specialized in planning and organizing training programs, including workshops, seminars and conferences.
Information International has, during the past three years, provided American and European firms (commissioned by the Ministry of Commerce and Standards Organization of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) with experts in World Trade Organization regulations and particularly the agreements on technical barriers to trade, pre-shipment inspections, sanitary and phytosanitary measures and customs valuation. Consultancy was provided in the procedures and structural changes required to comply with the provisions of these agreements. In addition, our experts participated in the negotiation, or accession of Saudi Arabia to the WTO. Over the course of the years, Information International has grown to have branches and representative offices in many countries including Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, Bahrain, Morocco and Egypt with a full operating team in each country.
