MEPS Participates in Third International Conference and Exhibition on Finance and Banking Services in Iraq
Middle East Payment Services (MEPS) - a consortium of elite local and regional banks that serves as a leading, innovative payment services provider in the Middle East – has participated in the Third International Conference and Exhibition on Finance and Banking Services in Iraq, entitled Iraq Finance 2016, which took place in Beirut, Lebanon. Under the patronage of the Central Bank of Iraq, the exhibition was launched by the Bank’s Governor, Ali Al-Alaq. The exhibition also drew the participation of more than 200 investors, heads of international companies and banks, financial and legal specialists, a number of prominent figures from the regional banking sector, as well as those concerned with economic development in Iraq. Over the course of two days, MEPS presented a wide range of its products and services on offer to the banking sector in Iraq. This step corresponds with its adopted expansion strategy, which seeks to bolster its standing in the Iraqi market, particularly in light of the Government of Iraq’s search for new strategic partnerships to contribute to addressing pressing financial issues within the banking sector and developing general infrastructure projects in Iraq. "We’re delighted to have participated in this exhibition, which presented us with a golden opportunity to network and exchange knowledge and expertise with the regional banking sector’s leaders. It has also introduced us to the latest banking services and prevailing trends, as well as the sector’s existing challenges and future opportunities. Iraq Finance 2016 has been the ideal platform for us to display our distinct products and solutions in the field of secure electronic payment services, which we currently offer to banks and financial institutions across Jordan, Palestine and Iraq,” commented MEPS CEO, Khaled Zakaria. “Our participation in this conference has given us the chance to reach a wider customer base in Iraq and to expand into new markets full of opportunities, and has made way for us to contribute to new investment projects that are meant to advance the infrastructure for financial services in Iraq."
