A New Fintech Region

 Enabling Synergies Between the Two Leading Fintech Hubs

The Abraham Accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, have great economic potential for both sides. The financial market is one of the most interesting arenas for economic cooperation between the two countries, and there is potential for joint action in the immediate term. The principalities have become the fourth largest trading area in the world, and since the UAE has become a major significant financial center in the region, all fintech technologies are highly desirable. Israel has plenty to contribute in this area.

Join us for a unique webinar, where we will be discussing the financial opportunities from the agreement, while exploring the creation of sustainable partnerships between the two leading financial centers in the middle east.
