  • Description

    A conference of Arab bankers opened in Amman, Jordan on Monday (19 June).

    SYNOPSIS: The three-day conference was opened by Crown Prince Hassan, of King Hussein's two brothers, at the Chamber of Commerce buildings in Amman. Bankers and representatives from more than fifteen Arab countries attended the meeting, which was called to discuss the future role of Arab-controlled banking institutions in the Middle East. In recent years there has been a growing emphasis in the region to become less reliant on Western banking in the handling of oil production and export.

    The Amman banking conference set out to promote and regulate Arab banking institutions in the Middle East, to reduce the region's reliance on Western financial management.
