The United Nations has chosen Dr. Mohammed Omran – FRA’s Chairman to chair the meeting of the UN Consultative Group for Financial Regulatory Authorities organized by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
The meeting which will be held in late April at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland is part of a new project adopted by the United Nations – to be implemented before the end of this year- represented in creating the Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative. The (SSE) initiative is a high-level platform to explore how the world’s exchanges can work together with investors, regulators and companies to create more sustainable capital markets in order to enhance transparency and performance in all aspects of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) and thus promote sustainable financing.
It is worth mentioning that Dr. Mohammed Omran was chosen by the United Nations to manage this initiative because of his experience and efficiency in the financial markets. Also, he is one of the founders of this initiative which was joined by five international Exchanges in 2012 including the Egyptian Exchange where Dr. Omran was the Chairman of the Egyptian Exchange in this period.
