Gone East

RM has opened an office in Abu Dhabi.

The company has been expanding its business interests in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia over recent months and has chosen Abu Dhabi as the base from where to grow the business in the region.

RM's recent success at the GESS exhibition (Gulf Educational Supplies Show), in Dubai, has reconfirmed its view of the opportunity in the Middle East and has encouraged it to move forward with its expansion plans.

Terry Sweeney, chief executive officer of RM said: “These are exciting times for us. Governments around the globe are acknowledging that education is the way to secure not only their nation's future and security but also that of its people.

“In an increasingly competitive environment the countries that invest in the intellectual capital of their young people will be the leaders of the future global economy. In this region it is obvious that education investment is a government priority and at RM we are delighted to be working alongside our partners to help them improve the life chances of school children and students.”
