Join us for a virtual roundtable with Citi Group Chief Economist for the GCC and Turkey -- Mr. Ilker Domac. He will speak about Economic Prospects and Policy Challenges for the GCC Countries – 2022 followed by a Q&A discussion. Wednesday, 2 February 2022, 3:00-4:00pm Bahrain Time.

The presentation aims to take stock of the recovery process since the outbreak of the pandemic and shed light on the growth outlook for the GCC economies. The case for promoting more diversified and resilient economies has become stronger than ever in the face of decarbonization efforts and the reduction in the prices of other sources of energy. The noted backdrop, in turn, calls for a closer look at the growth prospects and challenges for the GCC region.
