In a series of panel discussions, the forum will
kick off with a keynote address from Mark Thomas, group chief executive at Oil
and Gas Holding Company, and workshops by senior representatives from KPMG,

building on sustainable development achievements and doubling efforts in the
coming years,” bin Daina said in a statement.
The forum will discuss topics from Egypt’s COP27

sector’s belief in the pivotal role of the environment in achieving sustainable
development,” bin Daina added.

for the Middle East and North Africa region with regard to financing and the
evolution of climate regulations.
