With the stated aim of contributing to the reform of the Iraqi banking sector, the Central Bank of Egypt (CBE)'s Banking Institute has begun training employees of Iraq's central bank in modern methods of banking and finance, administration and human resources.
According to Banking Institute Executive Director, Hala al-Said, the move comes within the context of the World Bank’s strategy of supporting the Iraqi banking industry in conjunction with the Egyptian government's desire to participate in the war-torn country's reconstruction, particularly in the areas of finance and economics.
Al-Said explained that the first training course -- devoted to the issue of banking supervision -- had more than 100 Iraqi trainees. The institute will also begin a human resource management course in December for 20 Iraqi trainees.
