The OBOR initiative – which aims to promote wider economic cooperation and connectivity by expanding links between Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe through unprecedented infrastructure investments – is one of the most ambitious and potentially transformative developments in history. For the Middle East, OBOR stands to bring significant benefits. This session will examine: how the region is collaborating with China to progress OBOR; growing bilateral relations between the Middle East and APAC; and importantly, how local banks can support evolving client needs – including enhancing the transaction experience through innovation – as they seek to harness new opportunities along these corridors.
