Forum to highlight key financial issues
Abu Dhabi , January 21, 2013
The fifth Global Financial Markets Forum (GFMF) will bring to Abu Dhabi several Arab central bankers and an array of well-known international statesmen and leaders, who will provide a comprehensive forecast and analysis of current events.
The annual conference organised by the National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD) will be held at Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi on February 27 and 28.
The forum will see speakers and panelists discuss the critical subjects of the day, including analysing post-Arab Spring environment, the growing role of the UAE in global economy and macroeconomics in 2013.
"The GFMF has been established as the most prestigious and coveted regional gathering of the world's influential thinkers and decision-makers and we continue on to build on its achievement in each successive years," said NBAD senior GM of financial markets division Mahmood Al Aradi.
"This year, as in the past years, GFMF's speakers will explore the most important and critical issues impacting regional and global politics and economics," he observed.
Since 2009, GFMF has invited hundreds of attendees to share thoughts and benefit from discussions and analysis by prominent bankers, economists, investors and executives who offer insight into critical issues affecting global economy and investor sentiments.
Last year's GFMF attracted more than 700 delegates from across many countries and it featured distinguished speakers such as Paul Volcker, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve and system and economic adviser to President Barak Obama, and Axel Weber, former president of Deutsche Bundesbank, the German Central Bank and a member of European Central Bank governing council.-TradeArabia News Service
