Dubai, UAE: 20 September 2023 – His Excellency Mohamed bin Hadi Al Husseini, Minister of State for Financial Affairs, received a high-level delegation from the Republic of the Philippines at the Ministry of Finance’s Dubai office, in the presence of His Excellency Younis Haji Al Khoori, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Finance, and a number of Ministry’s officials.

The delegation from the Philippines also introduced the bonds for Overseas Filipino Workers that were announced in cooperation with the National Bonds Corporation, and coordinated by the Central Bank of the Philippines with a group of international banks, including Dubai Islamic Bank.
