Bankers and Financial Institutions successfully commemorated their development since 1991 to a more technologically driven industry with a high turnout at their recent celebrations on Wednesday 23rd of August 2017.
FIB President, Saud Minam commended the FIB Council and Committee of Management for the momentum and value added activities held over the years to support bankers across Fiji.
“We will continue to focus on learning and development initiatives for members, such as seminars on pertinent issues facing the financial sector. We will also continue to organize fun events that bring our members together in a more social setting, such as our indoor and outdoor sports activities and quizzes”, Minam said.
He also stressed out the primary focus going forward is for banks to remain technologically updated towards development and implementation of digital solutions for their customers.
Mr Minam further emphasized “Financial Institutions must collaborate to drive a savings culture in Fiji – we believe strongly that this is important for the long-term prosperity of all Fijians. This is why all banks have an obligation to drive financial inclusion initiatives that help communities adopt sound financial practices, such as budgeting, saving and planning for their future”.
