Participating were representatives of the London financial sector community and the Financial Services Authority (FSA) of the UK. This roundtable addressed the arrangements and models put in place by countries in the MENA region to achieve effective and coordinated supervision of their banking sectors and capital markets, with a view to identifying lessons learned and best practices.
