Tony Blair seeks to capitalise on Gulf ties
Tony Blair Associates (TBA), the office of the former UK prime minister Tony Blair, is considering opening an office in Abu Dhabi. GSN understands that a decision has yet to be taken, but given that TBA already has a member of staff based in the UAE, an expansion there would make sense. Blair has good political, business and personal links with the UAE; as well as the Gulf, an office in Abu Dhabi would oversee TBA’s business in the East, most notably Blair’s lucrative work with Kazakhstan.
