Borsa Istanbul launches new training program for employees of Bosnian bank
ISTANBULTurkey’s main stock exchange, Borsa Istanbul, has announced the launching of a training program for employees of Bosna Bank International (BBI) in line with a memorandum of understanding with the bank to facilitate the mutual exchange of know-how and experience.
A total of 16 employees will receive training for one year from Borsa Istanbul and Turkey’s Kuveyt Türk, it added.
Borsa Istanbul and Kuveyt Turk will cooperate to implement the training program. The trainees will receive training from Borsa Istanbul in the first month of the training period and from Kuveyt Turk in the next two months, according to the statement. The training program, which started on Feb. 8, 2016, is designed to contribute in the areas where BBI employees are keen to acquire know-how and experience, it added.
“We have historical ties with Bosnia and Herzegovina. We think this training program will contribute to further development of Bosnian markets which is a great pleasure for us. Know-how transfer between our institutions will also strengthen the links between our countries. We believe this comprehensive training program will pave the way for more long-term cooperation opportunities,” said Borsa Istanbul CEO Tuncay Dinç.
BBI CEO Amer Bukvic said the training to be received by BBI employees was quite valuable.
“BBI is the only bank in Southeast Europe operating according to Islamic banking principles. Our further steps of development cannot be detached from friends and colleagues in Turkish financial institutions. Therefore, the training of BBI employees at Borsa Istanbul is very important. It would be our great pleasure to cooperate with Borsa Istanbul and Kuveyt Türk in many other projects,” he said.
