Under a strategic collaboration, the DPE and LSE Enterprise will provide a series of roundtables, workshops and executive sessions on a broad range of topics including economics, public policy, finance, money and banking.

This agreement supports our leaders to make better informed decisions about complex and sensitive matters that affect everyone who lives here. The London School of Economics has a distinguished record in this field. We're pleased to enter this partnership with them,' commented DPE Undersecretary, HE Mohammed Omar Abdullah.
