Overview


MENA 2023: Export, Project & Development Finance

Ritz Carlton Dubai
Mar 14 - Mar 15, 2023
Dubai, United Arab Emirates

For the first-time we combined forces with our sister brands Proximo & Uxolo for a bumper networking MENA event which brought together the Export, Project & Development Finance industries...

Collaboration between Africa and the Middle East has arguably never been greater with many key players looking to reap the benefits of a promising trade corridor between the two regions. Newly formed Middle Eastern ECAs are united by both their desire to bolster exports from the region and by their designs on Africa as a key reciprocal trading market.

Moreover, burgeoning use of Dubai as a trading hub for the Middle East make it a ripe location to gather a deal-hungry attendee list from leading ECAs, exporters, borrowers, EPCs, developers, lenders, investors, ECAs and other key export and project finance players!

Top takeaways from the event:

 With the UAE’s local institutions well equipped to support local businesses, more and more international companies will turn to the likes of ADEX and ECI to support transactions with significant UAE content.

 Saudi Arabia appears to be the land of promise – a young, motivated workforce and increase of women in leadership roles should pave the way for exciting projects in sectors such as hydrogen, infrastructure, and more.

 But the country is not without its challenges: access to information is not always forthcoming, and some processes need significant adaptation for Saudi to be a full participant in the global financing ecosystem.

 ECA and DFI collaboration got off to a roaring start in 2022. We saw landmark transactions that proved partnerships between multilaterals and ECAs are crucial for closing deals in countries with middling risk profiles.

 MENA’s local banks role, as on-the-ground partners with significant local know-how is important for many transactions, others say that they lack understanding of the international financial ecosystem.

 Middle Eastern entities have significant roles to play in Sub-Saharan Africa. Drawing together MENA’s ECAs, investors, and local banks could support transactions in countries with perceived high risk profiles – but partnerships and creative thinking are the key to success.

☆ The energy transition is vital for future generations, but must be accessible, affordable, and achievable for developing countries. We cannot overlook the role of oil and gas revenues in the Middle East’s economy, and should not discount natural gas as a crucial transition fuel.
