“Integration into the banking sector is good for creating giant banking entities that are capable of meeting the economic challenges that the region is currently experiencing,” said Reda Mosallam, Managing Partner of Truth economic and management consultancy.
He added that there are a large number of banks, representative offices, payment offices, finance and investment companies and investment portfolios operating within the banking and financial sector in the country, expressing his belief that the number is greater than what the market needs. “The market needs strong financial and banking entities able to finance according to For modern financing tools, and can take risks”.
He also said that giant institutions were also required to reduce costs, as a result of their financial strength on the one hand, as well as the result of cost reductions on the other.
