Capital Bank recently sponsored the first regional conference on urban tourism in the MENA region, which was patronized by Jordanian Prime Minister Hani Al-Mulki under the heading of “Competitiveness for Sustainable Growth.”
The conference was attended by various senior officials, governors of several Arab capitals, ambassadors, businessmen and parties interested in the subject of tourism. The primary focus of the event was the global trend toward urbanization and its impact on cities and tourism in terms of competitiveness and sustainability, all of which was held in the context of the 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development organized by the United Nations until the year 2030.
Capital Bank’s participation came to reinforce its commitment to the local tourism sector and its belief in the important role it plays in sustainable development. The bank consistently provides support to initiatives and efforts geared toward promoting socioeconomic development in the Kingdom.
The organizers of the event awarded Capital Bank for its efforts to support the conference’s various proceedings and events, offering an honorary plaque that was received by the bank’s Head of Treasury and Investments, Ali Abu Sawi, on behalf of the CEO.
