Barclays Bank Egypt received the award at the annual Africa investor Investment and Business Leader Awards, an annual pan-African awards ceremony that recognizes and rewards achievements done by private sector companies in a wide variety of fields.
Barclays Bank Egypt succeeded in winning the award amongst a number of top performing companies in recognition of its efforts in supporting the SME sector as one of the main drivers for enhancing the Egyptian economy.
“We are committed to applying global best practice and adding value to the communities within we work. It is a great honour to win this prestigious award from Africa investor and to be recognised as the best in the continent for what we do for the SME sector in Egypt.” said Khalid El-Gibaly, Managing Director Barclays Bank Egypt.
The Africa investor Investment and Business Awards seek to reward exceptional business practices in the private sector, and shed light on the growth and investment opportunities in Africa. This is evident in this year’s awards that focused especially on companies and people who have shown exceptional skill and leadership in surviving the global recession and managing to find opportunities in the middle of a global crisis.
