The GCC’s retail market of $285 billion needs an in-depth and holistic approach towards Loss Prevention says Mushtaque Rahamat, Head of Supply Chain, Basicxx Middle East.

What are the emerging threats to the GCC’s retail sector and how can the Gulf’s retailers continue to lead the world by defeating these threats? In a wide ranging Keynote presentation at the Retail Risk – Dubai conference this November, Mushtaque will review retail loss in the Gulf: what it comprises, how to tackle it and what the future will bring.
