The Middle East and North Africa in general, but also the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council witness a relatively low level of financial integration as well as monetary integration on a regional level.
Given the legacy of the Global financial crisis as well as current developments in the Arab Gulf, these topics are of interest for the affected countries themselves, but also beyond regional borders.
This panel brings together high-ranked panelists that discuss topics related to opportunities and challenges of an increased monetary integration as well as the limitations and future prospects of the integration of financial markets, and also the role government policies play for financial stability and integration in the MENA region.
