Understanding politics, security, economics and energy in North Africa

Arab British Chamber of Commerce
16 December 2013


North Africa Hardball offers participants the opportunity to engage with a network of specialists focusing on all the countries of the region from Morocco through to Egypt.

Cross-border Information (CbI) chairman and internationally recognised Maghreb expert, Jon Marks, will head an expert panel that will lead discussions on the prospects for countries in North Africa over the 2014-2015 period, including energy and finance trends and policy directions.

This unique, interactive scenario-building meeting focusing on North Africa’s emerging political and economic landscape is for government, international oil companies, law firms, banks, fund management companies and corporate intelligence companies examining the political risks in North Africa in a time of change.

Held behind closed doors in a roundtable format, Hardball is played out under the Chatham House Rule, whereby participants can openly discuss critical issues but must not be quoted by name.

Registered delegates include senior representatives from BP, BG, Shell, Statoil, Hess, Kosmos Energy, Petroceltic, JOGMEC, Oea Capital, Falcon & Associates, the International Energy Agency, and Weir Oil & Gas.

Places are limited to preserve the roundtable format
