Richard Banks, Director of Emerging Markets for Euromoney Conferences expressed his pleasure at holding the conference in Kuwait for the fifth time;
“We’re pleased to be back in Kuwait,” he said. “We believe our proposition this year is more relevant than ever – the conference will discuss in depth the challenges faced by Kuwait, how it might and can change and conduct our annual review on the Kuwait economy.”
He added, “We will consider the state of the financial markets, macro-economic strategy and pivotal risk points. We’ll bring together local players with global thinkers for a focused one-day event which will define the agenda for the coming year. It’s the only event of its type in Kuwait this year.” — Director of Emerging Markets for Euromoney Conferences, Richard Banks
