Manama: The Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF), region's premiere training and development provider, has announced its professional certificate in the field of Islamic insurance (Takaful) in Egypt, in partnership with the Egyptian Insurance Institute (EII).

This came during the visit of Chief Executive Officer of the Egyptian Insurance Institute, Mr. Mohamed Hussain Al Dashish to the BIBF premises, where means to enhance training cooperation in various banking and financial fields were discussed.
