How is life sciences strategy consulting doing there? Considering a move to Dubai from Europe, but would like to know how is the market. Thanks!!!

I'm in a similar situation and looking to move from the US. From my limited research with a few colleagues from Deloitte and other T2 Strategy firms - there is relatively less work in the life sciences sector (i.e., pharma/ med tech) given the really small manufacturing footprint in the region. However, there has been an increased push on localization which has led to a few projects (E.g., NEOM in Saudi), and maybe more may open up. Largely, most of the work is in the Healthcare space and working with government entities.
