Sheikh Maktoum and Pinto discussed JPMorgan Chase’s plans to extend its reach and capabilities in the region. They also discussed the vast new opportunities for banking and financial companies emerging from the ambitious development projects being undertaken in the UAE. Sheikh Maktoum outlined how Dubai provides a supportive platform for tapping the vast avenues for growth and innovation arising from fast-growing emerging markets in the region that are going through rapid transformation.

Sheikh Maktoum added that robust public-private partnerships play a vital element in Dubai’s efforts to establish itself as a top-ranked global hub for financial services and technologies.
