However, businesses in the MENA region still struggle to access banking and financial services that would enable them to engage in international trade, as these businesses are at different stages of their development.

Amira Fadel, Tribal Regional Director for the MENA region, said, “As business operations return to normal, we expect market developments to drive further revenue growth in 2022.”

“International trade offers new growth opportunities for companies, so we must find ways to improve their participation in the global economy, facilitate their access and provide them with the necessary support. A suite of flexible, scalable, and easy-to-use business payment solutions should be provided to meet their needs for credit options, scalability, and flexibility. »

Today, businesses that see global commerce as the next step can make international transfers more efficient, secure, and at your fingertips with innovative technology.
