5th Annual Middle East Project Finance ForumThe needs of a rise in population and a demand for better infrastructure have driven growth of projects in the Middle East, even in the face of the current financial crunch. Projects have continued on unabated but now the issue remains clear: the crunch is affecting lending across the region.
There is so much uncertainty with regard to the credit crisis affecting projects that alternative financing tools are being looked at, including an ever increasing need for the involvement of SWFs, ECAs, Public Investment Funds and more.
In response to this financial turmoil, Jacob Fleming has just announced the 5th Annual Middle East Project Finance Forum 2009, the 5th in an annual series of successful Project Finance events. The Forum is taking place on 26-27 May in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
Earlier this year, the 4th Annual Forum shed light on numerous pressing issues for over 120 participants and provided key insights to industry professionals. The 2009 event aims to provide a view on how to return to stability albeit along more conservative lending lines. The focus will also be on the growth in market momentum required, and how current and upcoming projects can be shielded from the financial turmoil.
Also being presented will be the pipeline of large scale projects requiring finance. Advisors from Calyon, APICORP, Instrata Capital, Gulf Investment Corporation, HSBC Amanath etc. will converge to lead major sessions on the prospects of the project finance industry as those who regulate and influence the market.
