Our presence in the UAE provides the Bank with an important opportunity to grow, focusing on the huge volumes of trade that flows through Dubai to and from Africa and Asia.

The team from our Representative Office accompanied by Jeff Fallon recently participated in the GTR MENA conference, discussing burning issues in trade finance in the region.

BACB proudly sponsored the event, including a gala lunch for all attendees and encouraged delegates to meet with us by placing its first print advert in the conference guide.

Speaking about the GTR conference, Jeff Fallon, our Head of Trade Finance said "This high profile conference was well attended with over 500 banks and corporates present and considerably raised the profile of BACB in the region. The conference content was both topical and informative and provided an excellent networking opportunity. ”

Mo Usman, Chief Representative Officer in Dubai added: “We have big ambitions for BACB here in Dubai and the event was a useful exercise to expand our network, in addition to the many meetings that we are arranging here on a daily basis. It is a good example of how the team is working together between offices to build our business sustainably.”
