This demonstrates the recovery of the UAE economy and we are optimistic about the momentum ahead.”

Mr. Amiri added, “Our strong results for the second quarter of 2021 represent an important turning point for Ajman Bank after a challenging year since the start of the pandemic in March last year. The staff and the board of directors have done their best to preserve the value of the bank’s franchise and help our customers to get through these difficult circumstances, and we are very optimistic about the positive indicators shown by Ajman Bank and the UAE economy in general. We expect the improvement to continue over the coming quarters with sustained revenue growth, lower provisions and better cost control.”
