Speaking about the strong participation, Jamal Al Jassmi, General Manager at EIBFS, said: “The growing number of participants in our programs reinforces the Institute's position as one of the key banking and finance sector educational institutions in the region. We have also seen a significant increase in the number of Emirati participants, which is in line with our commitment to supporting the UAE government’s Emiratization efforts in the country’s banking and finance sector. EIBFS continues to make focused efforts in training qualified national cadres to achieve a balance between the public and private sectors.”
