The article discusses an outlook for the markets in Asia and the Middle East. McKinsey and Co. said that win-win opportunities abound for the two regions because there will be a lot of capital that will be available for investment up to 2010. Middle East nations are gradually moving away from focusing on oil alone, towards growing their economies. Mistrust and tension between the Middle East and the U.S. has spawned opportunities for Asia as many Gulf state companies look elsewhere to spend their money.
