PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES. The Palestine Chapter of the Middle East Investor Relations Society (ME-IR Society) successfully held its first meeting, headed by Chairwoman of the Palestine Chapter, Fida Azar - Manager of Palestine Exchange (PEX) Representative Office.

The meeting was also attended by representatives of PADICO Holding, PALTEL, Bank of Palestine, Jerusalem Pharmaceuticals, Wataniya Mobile and Palestine Securities Exchange.

 “This meeting comes as part of the continuous efforts and consultations carried by PEX in order to develop effective investor relations practices among listed companies,” Mrs. Azar said. “The meeting aimed mainly at identifying the key training needs for investor relations professionals in listed companies, as a first step towards launching a series of dedicated activities and initiatives in cooperation between the Palestine Chapter and the Middle East Investor Relations Society.”

The meeting addressed areas and mechanisms of enhancing investor relations and communications, as well as ways to attract new investors.

It highlighted areas of training required to hone Palestinian skills and expertise in investor relations, in light of regional and international experience. The meeting also touched on several practical issues related to the daily practices and challenges that face IR professionals.

Launched last February, the Palestine Chapter of ME-IR Society is headed by the Palestine Exchange.

The Middle East Investor Relations Society, established in 2008, is an independent, not-for-profit organization with membership open to all IR, financial communications, and capital markets professionals throughout the Middle East region. The Society’s objectives are to promote excellence in investor relations through executive training, professional qualifications, seminars and network events, working in partnership with stock exchanges, regulatory bodies and market professionals in the region.
