Cairo - Mubasher: The Secretary General of the Union of Arab Banks (UAB) Wissam Fattouh said the consolidated assets of the Arab banking sector are expected to reach $4.40 trillion by the end of 2022.
This represents a year-on-year (YoY) increase of 8.50%, state-run news agency MENA reported.
UAB's recent estimates indicate that the combined deposits may reach $2.85 trillion while loans could hit $2.80 trillion.
