Region EMEA

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) region is reeling from the combined shock of the pandemic and the dramatic fall in oil prices, which have only begun to recover.

As the pandemic plays out, treasury leaders in the MEA region must adjust to a new reality, as any recovery is likely to be uneven in a changed post pandemic world.

In the Middle East, liquidity and working capital remains key, as credit risks increase and cashflows are uncertain in core markets and sectors, including oil, real estate and tourism.

Africa has seen much hard won progress being reversed by the economic impacts of the pandemic in many countries, with several sovereigns at risk of default. Yet the region remains full of potential as treasurers work through testing times and prepare for recovery.

Why attend?
• Hear sessions with focus on the new risk environment, the medium and long term prospects for the region, and key lessons from 2020.
• Discover the latest thinking on liquidity and funding conditions for 2021.
• Learn how to overcome the challenges of managing hard currency shortages due to foreign capital flight.
• Discover how technology and digitisation is supporting treasury leaders as the ‘pandemic plays out’.
• The conference also looked at the latest innovations to improve efficiency and support business growth in the MEA region.
