  3. 3. C H A I R M A N ’ S M ESSAG E We are pleased to our annual training plan 2012. The plan focuses on supporting the banking and finance sector, in the UAE by enhancing its continuous efforts to upgrade the skills and competencies of its human resources, and enabling them to provide excellent services and innovative products. The new 2012 training plan has several distinguishing features, at the forefront of which is the application of a scientific approach to meet the existing and future needs of the banking sector, and helping it flourish in a turbulent environment characterized by various challenges, hence sustaining its growth and enhancing its contribution to our national economy.2 The entry of the new Dubai branch into service during the year 2012 widens the geographical coverage of the plan, and represents an addition to Sharjah and Abu Dhabi branches and other locations where training is offered. Cooperation with regional and international distinguished banking and financial institutions is maintained to reinforce our plans with the state of the art and best practices in training and development. It is worth mentioning here that we are develop- ing our training and educational programs by introducing new professional programs in areas of high relevance to the banking and finance sector such as credit management, banking operations, compliance awareness and anti – money laundering awareness. In addition to that, we will also introduce new graduate and post-graduate programs. As we present this plan, we would like to encourage all Banking and Finance Institutions to benefit from all the (403) programs included in the plan. I would also like to thank all the HR & Training managers, other employees in the banking & finance sector for their appreci- ated cooperation in developing the plan, and express many thanks to EIBFS staff Lastly, I hope that the 2012 training plan will facilitate achieving our objective in enhancing the capabilities of the staff of the banking and finance sector in UAE.
