Euromoney Jordan opens in Amman
Amman, May 7, 2012
High level ministerial speakers opened the Euromoney Jordan conference today in Amman, joined by over 500 leading Jordanian, regional and international financiers and businesses.
“This is our second annual event in Jordan and we’ve seen delegate numbers increase by over 20 per cent,” said Richard Banks, director, Euromoney Conferences.
“We are looking forward to discussing the three key challenges facing the Kingdom today; jobs, resources and finance. We are very pleased to have so many distinguished panellists and speakers addressing these vital issues."
While the GDP is growing in Jordan, with a projected increase in real terms from 2.8 per cent in 2012 to 3 per cent in 2013, according to the IMF, delegates will address the issue if it is growing sufficiently enough to sustain the expanding population.
"Euromoney has been actively involved in monitoring the Jordanian and regional economic paradigm, facilitating objective discussions for the propose of developing a realistic evaluation of economic challenges and proposing reasonable and effective interventions,” said Laith Al-Qasem, chairman of Arabian Business Consultants for Development in anticipation of the conference.
“The May 8-9 Euromoney conference will be addressing Jordan's most pressing challenges with the purpose of defining a progressive way forward" he continued.
Deema Bibi from INJAZ added: “I am looking forward to returning to INJAZ from this conference with a broader understanding of the global and regional environment Jordan is operating in, especially in relation to job creation, financing and economic development.” – TradeArabia News Service
