MENA Outlook: Monthly Arabia Monitor Conference Call


June 4, 2014
8:30am - 9:15am

Monthly Arabia Monitor Conference Call with Dr. Florence Eid-Oakden and Waleed Shoukry.

8:30 AM (New York EDT) / 1:30 PM (London BST) / 4:30 PM (Dubai GST)

  • Escalating violence levels in Libya are worrying, could the introduction of a new armed faction, led by retired Gen. Khalifa Hifter drag the country into a protracted civil conflict with Islamist militias?
  • Foreign interest in Iran continues to build up despite execution channels not being yet in place. What are possible outcomes for the P5 +1 negotiations ahead of the July 20th deadline?
  • With more flexible visa arrangements and stronger purchasing power, Chinese tourists are taking to the skies. How is Dubai capitalising on the influx of Chinese travellers and could the implications on the economy spread beyond the tourism industry?

Join the Arabia Monitor team to explore these and other questions defining the business and investment landscape in MENA this month.

Registration is required. Please RSVP to to receive dial-in details.
