(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Lagoon Capital Partners Limited, a private equity and advisory firm based in the Dubai International Financial Centre, hosted a group of some 50 institutional investors from Qatar, the GCC and Europe at a round table forum in Doha to discuss current developments and investment opportunities in the Mena region for 2014



Professor Bulent Gultekin, advisory board member of Lagoon Capital and former Governor of the Central Bank of Turkey addressed the gathering on "Navigating change in the MENA region"



"While geo-political events and shifting alliances have affected currencies and investor confidence, the medium term prospects remain promising. The prospect of stability in Egypt and resolution of the crisis in Turkey should provide the necessary confidence boost for the investor community. These are sizeable economies with close ties to the GCC and their stability and continued prosperity is a shared objective", Professor Gultekin said at the meeting
