Ithmaar’s support, as a gold sponsor, was presented to the forum chairman and Bahrain Polytechnic Professional Development Centre Director, Nisbet Smith, by its executive general manager, Juma Abull.
“Having played a pioneering role in the introduction and subsequent development of Islamic banking and finance in the region, Ithmaar Bank recognises the important role it must play in supporting the community in which it operates,” said Abull.
