Highlighting the importance of engaging UBF members in the decision-making, H.E. Mohammad Omran Al Shamsi said: “The establishment of the CEOs Consultative Council confirms UBF’s belief in the value of sharing knowledge and experiences among member banks to achieve its objectives, as wells in raising public awareness about the beneficial role and distinctive contribution of UAE banks in financial, economic and social development through cooperation, communication and interaction under the supervision of the Central Bank of the UAE”.
