Euromoney event draws top speakers
Manama, February 20, 2013
Euromoney Conferences, the leading organiser of financial strategy events, has announced that two international speakers will be joining the line-up of participants in the upcoming Euromoney Bahrain Conference 2013.
The conference will take place at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, Hotel and Spa on March 5 and 6.
Former UN deputy secretary-general and administrator of the United Nations Development Programme and Minister of State in the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office Lord Malloch-Brown will open the conference.
Also joining Euromoney and its guests will be investment guru Altaira Asset Management director of technical analysis Ralph Acampora.
Altaira Asset Management established its Middle East subsidiary, Altaira Middle East, in Bahrain in 2012.
"We are delighted to welcome such high-profile speakers to our Bahrain conference and know that their insight and experience will enable our guests to see a truly global viewpoint on financial strategy," said Euromoney regional director Richard Banks.
"It is also a very positive indication of Bahrain's continued importance to the international financial markets."
Banks said it is a further sign of Bahrain's upward trajectory complimenting, as it does, the recent ratings upgrade from Standard & Poors.
"We are delighted to be hosting the Euromoney Bahrain Conference," said Bahrain Transportation Minister and Economic Development Board chief executive Kamal Ahmed.
"Recent months have seen a series of encouraging economic data on Bahrain, including the upgrade from Standard & Poor's and the estimate in the Bahrain Economic Quarterly that the kingdom's economy grew 3.9 per cent in 2012 as the recovery gains momentum.
"We look forward to discussing these developments and the future for the Bahraini economy at the conference."
The Euromoney Bahrain Conference will provide a detailed analysis of the kingdom's economy and financial services industry.
International delegates and local participants will discuss and debate topics such as the sustainability of public finances, the development of infrastructure and the future of private banking in the region and Kingdom. – TradeArabia News Service
