Top executives attend Deutsche Mena conference
Dubai, February 5, 2014
Senior managers from more than 25 regional companies and institutional fund managers from across the world have come together for a Deutsche Bank conference in Dubai today (February 5).
The two-day Annual Mena Conference said Dubai’s economy is back on track and growing around five per cent per annum, said a statement.
The growth has been seen extensively in the real estate, tourism, transport and trade sectors, it said.
Ahmed Beydoun, head of equities for Mena at Deutsche Bank, said: “In the global context, the Mena markets have fared very well in 2013. In particular UAE and Qatar which will both join the MSCI EM in 2014 have enjoyed stellar performance.
“The conference provides an invaluable window for analysts onto regional companies and leading players, and gives participants access to Deutsche Bank’s regional equity and economic research and analysts,” he said.
The conference includes participating companies from a broad range of sectors including banking, telecommunication, real estate, infrastructure, consumer goods and industrials. - TradeArabia News Service
