The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Bank, Mr. Hassan Jarrar, then provided a review of key financial achievements for the second quarter of 2022 and subsequently led the ceremony dedicated to honouring employees with extensive years of service. Following a Question & Answer (Q&A) session which opened up the floor to answering any inquiries from the Bank’s employees, the Town Hall concluded with running raffle draws for a number of cash and in-kind prizes for the Bank’s employees, after which lunch was served to all attendees.
