Thomson Reuters Governance, Risk and Compliance Summit Brings Together Leading Gulf Regulators and Compliance Professionals
GCC countries urged to adopt unified economic, financial and legislative stand within the international regulatory community
His Excellency said this would in turn "develop the legal and regulatory frameworks for the financial markets and adapt them according to the markets' needs and circumstances in line with the interest and requirements of the Gulf common market."
There was also a clear call to up-skill local talent and workforce. "We all are aware of the importance of the regional human capital for the advancement of the securities markets. This requires upgrading the skills of the Gulf workforce and providing it with specialized professional skills that would promote the securities markets' contribution in the national economies and enhance the Gulf populations' capacities, ambitions and needs," His Excellency said.
Abdullah Salem Al-Salmi, the executive vice president of the Capital Market Authority, said: "The Capital Market Authority and Oman Centre for Corporate Governance is pleased to host this event with Thomson Reuters GRC. It is vital that stakeholders across the Arab region collaborate and work together to speak with one voice and, this forum is an important opportunity for us to promote this."
Singh added that corporate governance was becoming much more relevant and that the markets should be architected to instil self-discipline. "We need to demonstrate regulatory discipline; market discipline and self discipline," he said.
The global financial crisis was a common thread across the event, with Errol Kruger, Managing Director, Supervision & Authorisation, Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority, noting that the high-risk nature of the post-crisis era was "the new normal".
Mark Schlageter, President, Thomson Reuters Governance, Risk and Compliance said: " Thomson Reuters is honoured to have hosted this event in association with the Oman Centre for Corporate Governance, Capital Market Authority. We recognise that collaboration among financial system stakeholders is essential for a more transparent market, and by encouraging dialogue between regulators, their constituents and international experts, this kind of event aims to promote the long term growth and stability of regional markets and economies".
