BCCI Ties up with BIBF to Enhance Employee Capabilities

The Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) to provide all employees with intensive training programmes, with the main objective of enhancing their skills and developing their professional capabilities.

The MoU was signed at the BCCI premises by Acting Chief Executive Officer and Treasurer, Mr. Aaref Hejris, and the BIBF Director, Dr. Ahmed Abdul Hameed Al Shaikh.

On this occasion, the BCCI Acting Chief Executive Officer and Treasurer Mr. Aaref Hejris confirmed that this collaboration aims to develop the skills of the Chamber’s staff, enhance their professional abilities and increase their professional competency in their field of specalisation. This will position BCCI on an international level, as the current Board of Directors strongly believes in investing in developing the skills and capabilities of its staff, which are considered a main cornerstone of the BCCI strategy, and the true wealth that will lead to the satisfaction of the Chamber’s members for the services provided.

He also added that the selection of the BIBF is due to the fact that the Institute plays a vital role in the training and development of human capital in the Kingdom, providing more than 400 specialised training courses in all major business disciplines to both the public and private sectors by specialised expert trainers and market practitioners who are familiar with local market requirements.

On his part, the BIBF Director, Dr. Ahmed Abdul Hameed Al Shaikh stated, “At the BIBF we continuously strive to be at the forefront of quality training and educational programmes for individuals and organisations in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and we know that ongoing professional development plays a tremendous role in the success of any organisation. We are delighted to partner with BCCI through the signing of this agreement, which will provide a number of mutual benefits for both organisations.”
