Dubai, May 30, 2011
Dubai Outsource Zone (DOZ), a provider of purpose-built infrastructure, has announced its strategic partnership with a financial technology summit set to open tomorrow (May 31) in Abu Dhabi.
The seventh Financial Technology Summit and Meetings - Middle East will be held at the Beach Rotana Hotel until June 1.
The summit will focus on ‘Business trends and technology enablers in 2011-2012’. The exclusive event is expected to draw high-profile IT decision-makers from the banking and financial sector in the Middle East.
DOZ’s support to the event comes on the back of an increasing number of regional as well as global banks and financial institutions setting up support operations within the free zone, leveraging its array of mid and high-end services.
Dunia Finance, Mashreq Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Arab Bank are some of the key entities that have marked a presence at DOZ.
“A main focus for DOZ is to help businesses within the zone make the best use of their resources,” said Majed Al Suwaidi, director of business development at Dubai Internet City and Dubai Outsource Zone, a member of Tecom Investments.
“This is especially apparent in the finance and banking sectors with a significant number of institutions from the sector setting up back-offices in DOZ. Through partnering with the summit, we aim to highlight our commitment to the growth and development of the diverse sectors of the region,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
