The conference, entitled ‘2003 Review – 2004 Preview’, is divided into two halves with the morning sessions focussing on the previous 12 months and the afternoon taking 2004 as its date and offering delegates a preview of commerce in the new-year.
‘This is an opportunity for senior executives to take stock of 2003 and look forward to the coming year’ said event organiser, Michael Crawley, Director-Corporate Events for Intevents. ‘The conference will bring business managers, Arab, Western and Asian, together so that they may learn from each other’s experiences,’ he added.
Opening the conference, Michael Portillo MP, reviews the events of 2003 and offers his perceptive comments on a difficult year for the region. Joining him on the executive speaker panel, David Cass, Regional Media Adviser, submits a business appraisal of the past 12 months as well as giving reaction from the recently held US-Arab Economic Forum. Other morning highlights include Fincorp’s charismatic CEO, Haythem Macki, reviewing GCC’s stock markets and Oman’s corporations as well as a look at how business strategies performed over the year.
Following the 5-Star luncheon, delegates will look ahead to 2004 with the morning experts being joined by speakers such as Dr Fuad Jaffer Sajwani, Vice President, Central Bank of Oman and Sean Angle, Partner, Trowers & Hamlins. The conference concludes with David Cass and Michael Portillo returning to give a geopolitical preview and lead discussions on steps to take for greater prosperity for the region as a whole.
