The event, which was held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel & Spa in the Kingdom of Bahrain, was attended by local media from the Kingdom, correspondents from neighbouring GCC markets and regional representatives of international financial media and trade press. Also joining the gathering were a number of corporate communications specialists and clients of the firm representing some of the Kingdom’s leading private and public sector organisations and financial institutions.
The event featured a high level panel discussion presided over by Dr. Salem Al Gudhea, a prominent Saudi economist, commentator and economic advisor based in Riyadh, and Mr. Saleh Humeidan, the General Manager of Al Yaum, among the leading Saudi newspapers, based in Al Khobar. Their discussion focused on the unique role being played by members of the media in the development of the regional economies and financial markets and in particular the media’s position as important medium for building awareness among investors and the general public of issues of local, regional and international economic significance.
