Dr. Konstantin Saroyan moderated the roundtable discussions where all participants shared their opinions about the topics. 

 During the one-day event participants discussed two main topics:

  1. Capital Market Development Incentives
  2. The Role of Technology and Prospects of Post-Trade Infrastructure


Dr. Mohammad Farid Saleh, FEAS Chairman and EGX Executive Chairman said: “It was my pleasure meeting with FEAS members and non-members, key players of the capital market industry from Asia and Europe in one place to discuss, experiences, challenges, and new opportunities for the development of our industry. I hope the event was as insightful for all participating parties who were present physically or virtually. 

I would like to thank the FEAS Secretariat for their efforts in organizing the meetings and this event “Capital Market Talks” and I am looking forward to our future activities for the benefit of FEAS members.”.
