Why You Should Attend

8th Annual MENA CFO

The market prediction is bleak and only the tough will survive. That’s the sentiment being heard this year throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Is it really so? According to sources, opportunities can be created out of these circumstances depending on how CFOs strategise, tackle risks, and defend their organisations’ positions in the market place to ensure robust growth and maintain profitability. Technologies and analytics must be embraced to manage uncertainties and complexities; and the crucial point of adhering to governance, risk and compliance for continuous support from government, stakeholders and investors.


Be part of our prestigious 8th Annual MENA CFO 2016 conference that will explore themes such as CFO Agenda: Financial Risks VS Strategies, CFO Duties: Reinforcing Corporate Governance, CFO Vision: Harnessing Today’s Technology and Digital Transformation”. Our top-notch finance leaders are set to provide invaluable insights through expert presentation and customised interactive think tank discussions. These discussions will carry the themes of “Achieving Deal Value in Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliances in New and Existing Territories”, and “The Digital CFO: Revolutionising Digital Transformation in Financial Performance”.


Newly introduced is the Power Talk Session by industry experts on hot topics such as “To VAT or Not to VAT?” and “A Cloud Conversation with CFO”. There will also be a 30 Minutes Spotlight on “Grasping the Rules in International Tax for CFOs to Create Real Value for the Company”.
