Waqf Fund, BIBF join forces for capacity building of young Bahrainis

Manama, Apr. 29 (BNA):  The Waqf Fund of the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) has partnered with the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) to develop and launch a specialised training programme aimed at capacity building of young Bahraini nationals within the banking and finance industry.


This strategic collaboration demonstrates the commitment of both institutions to develop local talent and strengthen the foundations of the Bahraini business environment.


This three-week training programme is tailored for young Bahrainis, aiming to familiarise them with the core concepts and practices in the areas of risk, audit and compliance.  The objective is to open up new avenues of employment for young Bahrainis in areas where traditionally there has been a lack of Bahraini talent.  The training aims to build a basic understanding of risk management, audit procedures and regulatory compliance within the Bahraini business and financial sector landscape.


The training programme not only seeks to enhance the employment prospects of the participants but also encourages them to specialise in specific areas by pursuing relevant professional qualifications.  By fostering a culture of continuous learning and professional development, the programme aims to nurture expertise and create a pool of highly skilled Bahraini professionals in the banking and finance industry.


As a respected institution in the field of banking and finance education, BIBF brings its wealth of expertise and experience to the development and delivery of this programme.  With its commitment to excellence, BIBF is dedicated to ensuring that participants receive the highest quality training and knowledge transfer, empowering them to thrive in their future careers.

Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh, CEO of BIBF, said that the collaboration between the Waqf Fund and BIBF is a testament to their shared vision of developing local talent and driving the growth of the banking and finance industry in Bahrain.


“Through this joint effort, we aim to create a sustainable and prosperous future for the country’s financial sector,” he added.
