FDI in MENA: The Role of Capital Markets and Financial Infrastructure

In the era of low oil prices, access to foreign direct investment (FDI) is critical to the region. As the investment disruptions caused by the Arab Spring fade, foreign investment is returning to the MENA region, with a wide array of major projects in the works. This panel will discuss the key role that capital markets and financial infrastructure plays in not only attracting FDI but also creating solutions to the regional challenges.
