SABB, formerly known as the Saudi British Bank, has launched its 2011 guide to cash, supply chain and treasury management in the Middle East. This is the third year the guide has been jointly sponsored by SABB and HSBC.
The increasing need for expert trade and cash management solutions by the private sector across the Middle East during the current world economic turmoil is the core theme running through the important new edition. The guide also covers a country analysis section for twelve markets across the Middle East.
The guide addresses key business and technology trends in Saudi Arabia and the region, comprises detailed chapters on payments and liquidity management in the Middle East, paycards and SADAD systems in Saudi Arabia, mobile banking, renminbi (RMB) trade settlement, liability management, Islamic hedging, Basel implications on trade, and banks’ role in helping Saudi companies do international business.
It also includes detailed essays and case studies by a wide range of international authorities, SABB and HSBC specialists covering the full spectrum of cash management, trade, supply chain and treasury issues that corporations operating within and outside Saudi Arabia need to consider.
