Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdolnasser Hemmati has travelled to Kuwait to attend an international banking conference in the Arab country.
Hemmati is making the visit at the invitation of his Kuwaiti counterpart.
The CBK International Banking Conference: “Shaping the Future” is to be held in Kuwait City on Monday, September 23, 2019.
The event’s speakers will include key policymakers, C-level banking industry executives, banking experts and FinTech entrepreneurs from across the globe.
The CBK International Banking Conference will welcome an audience of top-level delegates involved in the global financial services sector such as government ministers, regulatory chiefs, banking CEOs, and academics.
The global banking industry today is facing a number of unprecedented threats and challenges. The prospects for the global economy remain uncertain, with global debt, political uncertainty, trade tensions, and volatility in commodity and currency markets being a major concern for governments and businesses around the world. And the inability of governments to increase interest rates or reverses unconventional monetary policy without impacting economic growth leave few policy options to address any future economic shocks.
This conference will provide an opportunity for the highest levels of policy makers and industry leaders to discuss and address these challenges, and present a way forward for the industry. It will hear from governors of central banks, economists and CEOs of banks on their perspectives on these different challenges, and collectively work to present a shared vision for the sustained growth of the industry.
