Middle East Insight 2020 - Video -

In The Banker video series we discuss the challenges facing economies in the Middle East in 2020, steps governments are taking to diversify their economies, and the particular role that fintechs will play in boosting economic growth in the region.

    Diversification of revenue streams is increasingly important for Middle Eastern economies, with increased investment in infrastructure, tourism and fintech designed to reduce reliance on hydrocarbons.
