World Economic Forum on the Middle East - Online MediaAccreditation Opens

(PresseBox) ( Genf, )
The World Economic Forum has opened media accreditation for its annual World Economic Forum on the Middle East, which will return to the Dead Sea, Jordan, on 15-17 May 2009.

Under the theme "Implications of the Global Economic Crisis for the Middle East: Home-grown Strategies for Success", the meeting will focus on the growing role of the Middle East in addressing critical global challenges. For this part of the world, the global economic predicament is coupled with highly volatile energy markets and large-scale erosion of asset values.

The region's economic landscape is being transformed. How will this transformation unfold throughout the year? The Middle East's aspirations for prosperity will be challenged as it attempts to restore its own growth while navigating a complex geopolitical landscape.

The 2009 World Economic Forum on the Middle East will be a timely gathering of the foremost regional and global leaders to articulate the Middle East's response six weeks after the G20 Summit in London and one-quarter of the way into implementing the 2009 rescue packages of the United States, Europe, India and China.

The Co-Chairs of the meeting are:
Samir Brikho, Chief Executive Officer, Amec, United Kingdom
Chey Jae-Won, Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SK E&S, Republic of Korea
Abdulatif Al Hamad, Chairman and General Director, Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development, Kuwait
Esam Janahi, Chairman, Gulf Finance House, Bahrain
Kevin Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, Heidrick & Struggles, USA
