Investing in 
The New Levant
8 May 2014 | Four Seasons, Amman  

A one-day international summit for CEOs, Chairmen, CFOs, Finance Directors, MDs, Marketing and Sales Directors interested in or already investing in the Levant region.

Global companies and financial institutions are now becoming aware of the opportunities on offer to them in Lebanon, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Kurdistan (KRG) and Iraq - an area referred to as the Levant. This region is home to a hefty percentage of the world’s oil and gas reserves and an array of sectors that remain relatively untapped, such as telecommunications, technology and finance.

The wave of change taking place across this region has produced an abundance of investment opportunities in many sectors. The momentous political changes have now put the region firmly back on the radar of foreign investors keen to make returns.
