Euromoney Kuwait Conference 2017 - Forging the New Kuwait


The New Kuwait package of economic and financial reform is a bold statement of intent from a government that is determined to set an example to the region. We’ve gathered together senior figures from both government and international and domestic finance to discuss how this plan can be implemented successfully and its potential impact on Kuwait, and beyond.

Topics under discussion include:
• How to diversify the economy in the face of oil-price decline
• Attracting long-term FDI
• Prospects for Kuwaiti banks
• Infrastructure finance and mega projects
• Access to international capital (sovereign, corporate and FIG)
• Regional and international opportunities for investing Kuwait’s wealth.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming delegates from across the region, and beyond, to what is our ninth conference in Kuwait,” says Victoria Behn, Director for Middle East and Africa at Euromoney Conferences. “Our long experience in the region and roster of high-level speakers means we can shed light on the kinds of issues that genuinely matter to investors and issuers.”
