Managing Localisation Programs – Is it time for a Chief Localisation Officer
In a very interesting article, SCHLÜTER GRAF Legal Consultants make the argument that for companies to survive and thrive in the ever-changing Value Add and Local Content Oil and Gas world, they will need to invest in management level human resources.

In addition, as each program is different there are specific legal and tax implications.
