INTERNATIONAL. Khaleeji Commercial Bank participated in the Leaders Summit Conference held in India during the period 14-17 January under the title "Future of Capital Markets During 2010". It was represented by Husam Saif, Head, Treasury and Capital Markets.

During his participation, Husam submitted a working paper entitled "The Increasing Importance of Islamic Finance," in which he dealt with the role of Islamic finance in developing leading projects in the Far East, and how to employ it in the service of different sectors, particularly amid the global economic crisis.

Husam's working paper also discussed the factors that caused  Islamic finance institutions to be less effected by the consequences and effects of the financial crisis.

This is due to the compliance of the activities of these financial institutions with the principles of the Glorious Islamic Shari'a based on transparency in dealing with different parties and fairness in the appropriation of returns among all investors.

Leaders Summit Conference is considered one of the most high profile economic events with 60 speakers include prominent executives and decision-makers from different countries of the world taking part.

The conference was also attended by more than 200 leaders of various financial institutions. Participation in this event was only made upon personal invitations extended to leading personalities from around the world.

 

 

 

 


 

 

MIDDLE EAST BUSINESS COMMENT & ANALYSIS

UAE. "In the final months of 2014, we expect further increases in occupancy rates, with the pleasant weather attracting more tourists, alongside the seasonal increase in events and conferences."

INTERNATIONAL. In the end, it is unlikely that the territorial Islamic State can survive. The truth is that Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia are all waiting for the U.S. to solve the problem with air power and a few ground forces. These actions will not destroy IS, but they will break the group's territorial coherence.

BAHRAIN. The "increasingly deregulated and competitive economic environment is facilitating rapid growth in business development within the private sector."
UAE. An advisory body to the UAE government has suggested that the central bank review the country's currency peg to the U.S. dollar, but local bankers said any change to the peg remained very unlikely for the foreseeable future.
