Willem Brocker, global managing partner (markets) has already met with the PwC Middle East leadership team to finalise plans for significant expansion of PricewaterhouseCoopers in the region.

The Jordan and West Bank & Gaza firms were named as PwC member firms earlier this year.

The meeting, currently underway in Amman, coincides with the World Economic Forum’s Middle East Summit

PwC has a strong presence in the region with 900 partners and staff in 22 offices in 13 countries

Willem Brocker said: ‘We believe that the Middle East has significant economic potential not simply by virtue of its energy reserves, but also because the economies of the region are diversifying at a steady pace. We want to be well positioned to assist local clients and companies outside the region with their inbound and outbound activities and to help companies in the region develop the transparency and accountability that are essential ingredients to thriving economies.’
