The Euromoney Qatar Central Bank Conference, which is called ‘global finance, redesigned’, will take place next week under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, State of Qatar, who will be opening the event.

The financial services industry is in the process of a generational change and rebalancing, and the Qatar event provides an important opportunity for experts to outline how these changes will impact Qatar and the wider Arab world.

Leading policy-makers, central bankers, financiers and investors will join Euromoney on 11 December 2012 for two days of debate and networking to discuss the emergence of the new global financial landscape.
