The organisation and programming of the event were superb; rich in attendance in both numbers and quality of delegates, it was a great opportunity to take advantage of bilateral relationship meetings.
Abraham Nwankwo, Debt Management Office, Nigeria
Networking, networking, networking……… by far the largest platform for loans and bonds bankers and issuers in Middle East. Worth investing 2 days!
