Business Leaders from Oman Visit BBI Bank
A large business delegation from the Kingdom of Oman currently resides in Bosnia and Herzegovina due to the organization of BBI Bank and their VIP Business Club. The delegation is led by Said Saleh Al Kiyumi, Chairmen of the Oman Chamber of Commerce, and includes affluent leaders from governmental institutions, state funds and owners of some of the largest private companies in Oman that are interesting in cooperation within the field of food production, furniture, energy and tourism.
Representatives of Oman's institutional investors and leading businessmen in the private sector met today with BBI's management and were presented with potential investment opportunities in BiH and the region.
Through discussion with BBI’s management, guests from Oman were made familiar with the banks activities including the organization of the annual investment conference, the Sarajevo Business Forum (SBF) that brings foreign investors to BiH.
Director of BBI Bank, Amer Bukvic, presented investment opportunities SBF could potentially bring to the region. “Every year SBF brings together entrepreneurs and businessmen from across the region. More than 200 B2B meetings take place between regional businessmen and foreign investors giving many the opportunity to create a substantial network of contacts. This year in particular, there is great interest in investing in agriculture and organic food production. As the Omanis are also interested in investing in tourism and the energy sector, we invited them to come back to BiH to participate in the SBF conference on the 22nd and 23rd of May” said Bukvic.
