Reuters Middle East Investment Summit
A year and a half after Arab Spring uprisings erupted across much of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, what are the risks and the opportunities of investing in the region today?
November 18th - 21st, 2012
Economies in the Middle East and North Africa are coping with the aftermath of the Arab Spring uprisings and an unstable global environment. Many have boosted
state spending to sustain growth and head off popular discontent, but this is putting heavy pressure on the government finances of some of the most volatile countries, such as Egypt.
In the Gulf, high oil prices are fueling a consumer boom and massive investment in infrastructure, but the International Monetary Fund has warned that governments risk a sharp deterioration in their finances if oil prices turn down in coming years.
These topics and more will be discussed at the Reuters Middle East Investment Summit, where Reuters will interview some of the region’s most influential figures during closed interviews in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Cairo, Tunis, Riyadh, Doha, Manama and Baghdad.
The Summit will generate exclusive stories, investable insights, online videos that will be immediately available ONLY to Thomson Reuters clients during the event.
