The Euromoney Kuwait Conference

On Tuesday 15 September the 7th Euromoney Kuwait Conference brought together a record number of delegates. Joined by policy-makers, key government officials, business leaders, financiers and investors we examined the need for innovative strategy to overcome Kuwait's challenges and make the most of real opportunities. Set in the context of global instability and uncertainty the conference examined the creation of innovative approaches to policy, to business and to investment. The conference highlighted the many challenges faced by Kuwait but set an optimistic tone, providing an insightful and informative experience for the high level local and international audience.

Global interest in Kuwait continues to rise, driven by the strong performance of Kuwait’s banks in recent years, significant government investment in infrastructure and energy projects, and generally high asset quality. Kuwait’s ongoing diversification strategies, supported by the banking sector’s enhanced focus on SMEs and retail lending, have also generated strong interest from international financial groups. Leading bankers and finance professionals from the UK, USA, Spain, Denmark, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE and elsewhere took part, reflecting the rising global profile of Kuwait’s financial sector.
This year’s conference brought together key stakeholders to review the theme of this year’s event, “Innovation in Uncertain Times”. Featuring keynote speeches, live interviews and panel discussions with a range of senior policy-makers, bank chairman, investors, international analysts and commentators.

Euromoney would like to thank all the delegates, speakers and sponsors for helping to make this year’s Euromoney Kuwait Conference such a resounding success and we look forward to next year’s event.
