Host Chris Nelson talks to The National’s business journalists John Everington, Deputy Business Editor; Dania Saadi, Assistant Business Editor; Jennifer Gnana, Energy Reporter; Sarmad Khan, Companies and Markets Editor; and Sarah Townsend, Senior Business Correspondent, about the stories that caused a stir this year.

It’s been a big year for business across the UAE and the wider region and the past 12 months have sprung some surprises and ushered in some major changes. From technology spectaculars like Apple’s launch of the iPhone 10, through the country gearing up for the introduction of VAT on January 1, stabilising oil-prices, the resurgence of the local and regional IPO sector, to a surprisingly upbeat Dubai Airshow, 2017 gave us plenty to discuss and much to consider.
