Pales­tine's 3rd Busi­ness & Fi­nance Fo­rum took place at Mo­even­pick Ho­tel in Ra­mal­lah with the pa­tron­age of H.E Dr. Rami Ham­dal­lah, Prime Min­is­ter of Pales­tine. The con­fer­ence at­tracted 30 Pales­tinian di­as­pora busi­nesses from Jor­dan and the Gulf coun­tries, with more than 150 others rep­re­sent­ing Pales­tinian Cham­bers of Com­merce, In­dus­trial Fed­er­a­tions, Busi­ness­men and Busi­ness­women As­so­ci­a­tions, Banks, IT and Fi­nan­cial com­pa­nies. The con­fer­ence was or­gan­ised by United Com­pany for ex­hi­bi­tions and con­fer­ences. The aim of the event was to ex­plore op­por­tu­ni­ties of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Pales­tinian busi­nesses and their coun­ter­parts out­side of the coun­try. The public sec­tor was pre­sent to in­tro­duce gov­ern­ment to the po­ten­tial for in­vest­ment at­trac­tion, and the pri­vate sec­tor in­tro­duced suc­cess sto­ries in dif­fer­ent fields to en­cour­age both the in­vest­ment in, and es­tab­lish­ment of, com­pa­nies in Pales­tine. The Fo­rum fo­cused on three sec­tors: In­dus­trial, Fi­nan­cial & In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and in­volved renowned keynote speak­ers from both public and pri­vate sec­tors. Many Pri­vate sec­tor com­pa­nies had spon­sored the event such as: PADICO Hold­ing, Reach Hold­ing, Cairo- Am­man Bank, Arab Is­lamic Bank, Pales­tine Com­mer­cial Bank & United Se­cu­ri­ties. At the in­au­gu­ral ses­sion, Deputy Min­is­ter of Na­tional Econ­omy, Tay­seer Amr ( rep­re­sent­ing the prime min­is­ter), said that the gov­ern­ment is work­ing with eco­nomic and in­ter­na­tional trade or­gan­i­sa­tions in or­der to achieve mem­ber­ship, in­clud­ing the World Trade Or­gan­i­sa­tion, and the World In­tel­lec­tual Prop­erty Or­gan­i­sa­tion amongst others. He said that Pales­tine is fully ded­i­cated to deepen and de­velop as­pects of the eco­nomic part­ner­ship with the Euro­pean Union, to pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for Pales­tinian prod­ucts to en­ter the EU coun­tries' mar­kets eas­ily, and take ad­van­tage of Euro­pean pro­grams and as­sis­tance in the eco­nomic and tech­ni­cal fields. Mr. Amr pointed to the im­por­tance of in­vest­ment fo­rums held by the pri­vate sec­tor that are sup­ported and en­cour­aged by the gov­ern­ment to at­tract in­vestors to Pales­tine, and to hear the suc­cess sto­ries from within the pri­vate sec­tor.
