Today #DIFC released a new report developed by the Economist Intelligence Unit entitled “The Next Frontier: The future of finance in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.” There are three major sections in the report covering the state of finance, the future of finance and the enablement of finance through regulation and best practices – within the broader MEASA environment. Among the key findings, the report reveals there are significant opportunities in traditional and non-traditional financial services especially for women and the youth. Arif Amiri, Chief Executive Office of DIFC Authority, said, “This report effectively illustrates the shifting dynamics shaping the future of finance across the MEASA region, demonstrating how this part of the world is pivotal to the sector’s development.” Read the full report here: https://www.difc.ae/newsroom/press-releases/new-eiu-report-commissioned-difc-explores-how-measa-will-be-instrumental-driving-future-finance
