abbc Round Table Dinner Monday May 26, 2016

Saturday - 23 / April / 2016

‘PARTNERSHIP WITH ALGERIA’

Round Table dinner

THURSDAY MAY 26TH, 2016

Hosted by Lady Olga Maitland

for

Mr Rachid Sekak

Financial Adviser

Former ceo HSBC Algeria

Mr Rachid Sekak was honoured by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11 with the MBE in 2014 for his services developing economic relations between Algeria and the United Kingdom.

He will give an update on how the Government and private sector in Algeria are working together as Algeria presses on with its financial reform.

Mr Sekak was a keynote speaker at the Forum des Chefs d’Enterprise conference in London in October 2015.

In his presentation Mr Sekak made the point Algeria is like a ‘well kept secret’ .  Algeria has advantages other oil producing countries do not have: namely reserves of $159b, extremely low foreign debit ($3.3. billion,) and hence the country can afford to implement reforms gradually but cannot afford to let the moment pass without taking action.

He spelt out challenges and top priorities to the Government,  and stressed they needed a more friendly business climate all round including foreign direct investment.

He pointed to the much better dialogue with the private sector –and that political commitment for diversification is now decidedly stronger.

The final message was ‘the country is waiting for you – but remember Algeria is a story of Perseverance and Return as opposed to Risk and Return.
