Dubai-based The Business Channel is introducing an Arabic economic documentary that looks at the World Trade Organisation and what it means for the region. The series coincides with the build-up to November’s World Trade Organisation Conference in Qatar, which is scheduled to go ahead as planned.

The series ‘Economic Cross Roads,’ is being produced and presented by Jordanian journalist Saleh Madhi, and will feature interviews with Saeed Al Nisibi, WTO affairs director and Dr. Hassan Abu Taher, WTO affairs consultant, both from the UAE Ministry of Economy and Trade.

The first of the 30 minute programes will be aired on Thursday, October 4th at 10.30 p.m. and will be repeated on Friday, October 5th at 5.30 a.m. and on Saturday, October 6th at 00.30 a.m.

“The staging of the WTO conference in Qatar is a major event for the region and will focus the eyes of the trading world on the Gulf,” said Rashid Murooshid, Managing Director, Business Channel. “This regional milestone deserves in-depth and incisive coverage, not only from an international perspective but also from a Pan Arab point of view.”
