Chairman and CEO Fouad El Hibri insists that good business opportunities often arise in time of crisis, which he considers the best time for entrepreneurs to invest in new projects. “When the market is down, I believe that good opportunities arise and investors have better chances to find assets that are undervalued and able to provide wonderful returns in the future,” Hibri told The Daily Star.

“I see within any turmoil great opportunities,” he said.
