Qatar International Islamic Bank (QIIB) recently welcomed a group of graduates from the Omani University of Buraimi, who visited QIIB as part a tour, which also included a number of universities and institutions in the country.
The Omani graduates’ tour was arranged to help them gain an idea about the successful Qatari experience in benefitting from youth potential in various fields.
QIIB Deputy CEO, Mr Jamal Abdullah al-Jamal met with the students, along with Mr. Ali Hamad al-Musaifri, Head of HR and Public Services Department, and Mr. Omar Abdul Aziz al-Meer, Head of Business Development at the Bank.
Mr al-Jamal welcomed the Omani graduates and expressed his happiness about their visit and about the opportunity in sharing experiences with them as beloved brothers.
He further stressed on the importance of the well-rooted fraternal relationships between the Qatari and the Omani people, and the role of different institutions, such as banks, universities and other centres of higher learning, in deepening the fraternal relationship through cooperation in various fields, exchange of visits, and sharing of experiences.
The Deputy CEO presented an overview about QIIB since its establishment more than 25 years ago, its different development stages up to the current level, where the Bank has become one of the most important destinations for Islamic banking in Qatar and the region.
He said, “The integral services offered by the bank to the different categories of customers, and its contribution to the Qatari economy by funding projects help in contributing to the nation’s development and self-sufficiency. This is now an important objective, which we are all seeking in light of the attempts being made by some neighbouring countries to impact our prosperity and the welfare of our people”.
As part of the Buraimi graduates visit, an interactive session with QIIB executives was held. At this interactive session, several matters related to bank jobs, linking universities to the job market, educational and professional experience and the relevant role in enriching the practical experience of new graduates were discussed threadbare.
At the end of the visit, the graduates and their accompanying professors thanked QIIB for giving them the important opportunity to learn more about its valuable experience in Islamic banking.
They stated that the way they were welcomed at the bank and in other institutions they visited in Qatar, reflected the nobility and high ethics of the Qatari population and their love and affection for their brothers in the Sultanate of Oman.
It also reflected on the country’s ambition to keep developing all aspects of nation building activities, and cooperating with the different institutions in both countries, including those in the private sector.
The potential for growth and cooperation is unlimited with the great support of the leaders of both the fraternal countries.
