The Euromoney Kuwait Conference

On Tuesday 26 September, Euromoney Conferences returned to Kuwait City for the 9th annual Euromoney Kuwait Conference. Welcoming senior government officials, policy makers, international and Kuwaiti investors, issuers, and corporate CEO’s, the one day conference explored the ambitious New Kuwait strategy and the opportunities it is set to bring over the coming years.

We were once again delighted to have the support of the Ministry of Finance of Kuwait with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, H.E Mr Anas Al-Saleh, delivering the opening keynote address at the conference, followed by H.E. Dr Mohammad Yousef Al-Hashel, Governor of the Central Bank of Kuwait. Discussing financial and economic developments and the New Kuwait vision delegates gained valuable insight into the progress being made at this important time.

The morning continued with a series of one-on-one keynote interviews with senior representatives from sponsoring Kuwaiti banks and international asset managers including Gulf Bank and Alghanim Industries, Kuwait Banking Association, National Bank of Kuwait and Standard Life Aberdeen. In addition, Euromoney welcomed to the stage the Kuwait Authority for Partnership Projects and Boursa Kuwait Securities and Kuwait Clearing Company to discuss their contributions to a New Kuwait.

Throughout the day the conference hosted two panel discussions joined by an array of leading local and international speakers. The first covered the macro-economic outlook for Kuwait and the second delved into the role of financial services in the New Kuwait strategy. The conference also held a new special session discussing both equity and debt capital markets and the all-important issuance of Kuwait’s first sovereign bond with speakers from NBK Capital, Al-Hossam Legal and the new Head of Debt Management at the Ministry of Finance of Kuwait.

Euromoney would like to thank all our sponsors, speakers and delegates, without whom the event would not be possible. We look forward to returning to Kuwait City in 2018 for the 10th Euromoney Kuwait Conference and seeing you all there.
