Tamkeen wins top finance training award
Manama, December 17, 2012
Tamkeen, Bahrain’s labour fund, won the Training and Development of Finance Professionals award at the Middle East Accountancy and Finance Excellence Awards held recently in Dubai.
Organised by the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) and sponsored by Emirates NBD, the awards recognise excellence in the field of accounting and finance. Chief executive of Tamkeen, Mahmood Hashim Al-Kooheji accepted the award.
“We would like to thank the ICAEW for organising this event, and are deeply honoured to represent the Kingdom of Bahrain here at these awards,” Al-Kooheji said.
“Winning this award demonstrates Tamkeen’s commitment to enabling Bahrainis to achieve their potential by creating opportunities for them in a wide range of growing sectors, while at the same time enhancing the capabilities of enterprises to boost their growth and productivity,” he added.
Peter Beynon, ICAEW regional director Middle East, said: “Tamkeen should be very proud of this award – it has been recognised as being the best in the region for the way it supports the training and development of Bahrain’s private sector.
“Moreover, this has been done by some of the toughest critics available; leading figures from within the accounting and finance industry. Training and development in all professions, but especially in financial services, will be a key part of achieving the aims of Bahrain Vision 2030, and Tamkeen is making a clear contribution to prosperity in the country.”
Established in August 2006, Tamkeen is an initiative funded by the private sector for the private sector, tasked with developing Bahrain’s private sector and positioning it as the key driver of economic development. – TradeArabia News Service
