We are therefore proud to sponsor such a prestigious conference, bringing together the most influential figures in Forex and commodity trading in the Middle East.

"The FX Championship is also an innovative and exciting way of raising awareness of the online currency and commodity trading industry, and of the growing prominence of this relatively new component of investors' diversified portfolios", Najjar concluded.
