MENA Outlook: Monthly Conference Call


February 6, 2014
8:30am - 9:15am

In the second MENA Outlook Briefing of 2014, the Arabia Monitor team analyses developments in MENA this month which have brought to a head several of the region’s ongoing conflicts including in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen where new chapters in democracy are beginning. The team will also discuss proposals on the table at Geneva II where we expect the status quo to prevail. The worsening of the Syrian crisis and resumption of negotiations with Iran over the nuclear dossier last year were never two independent events and we could begin to see over the next few months a more direct linkage. Economic developments in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon are also on the agenda in addition to an update on our Fixed Income and FX strategy.

8:30 AM (New York EDT) / 1:30 PM (London BST) / 5:30 PM (Dubai GST)

Registration is required and open to all ABANA members. RSVP to to receive dial-in details.
