Egypt bourse chief heads to Singapore for UN SSE Global Dialogue

Egyptian bourse chief Mohamed Omran is heading to Singapore to attend UN’s 2016 Sustainable Stock Exchanges Global Dialogue.

The event will be held on 5-6 September.

The 2016 SSE Global Dialogue aims to provide a platform for stock exchanges to meet with their peers and stakeholders to evaluate the impact of new global sustainable development and green-finance policy agendas on capital markets.

Omran is participating in the event based on an invitation by UN’s Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative, as he would share best practices on sustainability and capital markets.

Held once every two years, the SSE flagship Global Dialogue is a unique global gathering designed to bring together market leaders to analyse, promote and foster communication on stock exchanges’ sustainability initiatives. Attracting speakers and audience members from around the world, the SSE Global Dialogue has become the main global platform for convening dialogue on sustainable capital markets.

The 2016 Global Dialogue will build on the launch of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the outcomes of the United Nations Paris Summit on Climate Change (COP21). These two agreements have led to a new Global Sustainable Development Agenda, which is further strengthened by the 2016 G20 China presidency Green Finance Study Group.
