Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) has signed a QR800mn financing deal with NBK Holding.
The signing ceremony was held at NBK Holding's headquarters and was attended by Sheikh Nawaf Nasser bin Khaled al-Thani, chairman and CEO of NBK Holding, and Ahmad Meshari, acting chief executive officer of QIB.
HE Sheikh Nawaf said: "The financing agreement with QIB will enable NBK to move forward with its ambitious expansion plans. NBK Holding's subsidiaries have significantly contributed to the Qatari private sector and the company's strategy is to continue its pioneering role in the economic growth of Qatar. This collaboration between NBK Holding and QIB is an example of successful partnerships that should and do exist between local institutions. We are very happy with the Islamic finance solutions that QIB presented to us to finance our projects, and we will work with the bank to develop this relationship further by nurturing the constructive co-operation between the two organisations."
"The diversity in the activities of NBK will enable it to help achieve the aspirations of the wise leadership of the country, which is to diversify its economic resources for sustainable economic growth," said Sheikh Nawaf.
