The management of Stanbic Bank Ghana limited, one of the leading international trade financing institutions, has organized a day’s fraternization workshop to sensitize its customers on the new banking trends and other sophisticated ways of making payments.
The workshop brought together, over fifty customers of the bank who were drawn from the mining sector, productive sector, as well as, the export and import sector of the economy.
Present at the workshop were; Mechanical LLyod Company Limited, Ghamot Ghana Limited, Intertplast Company limited and Ghacem, the leading cement manufacturer, among others.
Speaking at the day’s sensitization workshop at the plush Holiday Inn Hotel in Accra, Mr Alhassan Adani, Managing Director of Stanbic Bank said, the bank’s decision to sensitize its customers on the Transactional Products Service (TPS) is to let its clients know that TPS is a safe and
sophisticated way of international banking.
He said TPS was a much better way of doing international business in this modern time of global village.
He explained that a team of professionals from the Head Office of the bank in South Africa (SA) are also in the country to take the customers through modern trends in the industry and teach them how to raise Letters of Credit (L.C) to facilitate safe international business.
The MD said that the sensitization workshop was to solicit feedback from the customers and to deepen the bank’s relationship with its clients over the years.
He posited that satisfying the client’s need was the core of the bank’s way of finding solutions to their needs.
He said the bank would take the opportunity to engage the clients and investigate some of their problems that hinder the progress of doing business with the bank.
He revealed that the bank was making frantic efforts to organize an investment forum in Accra, where stakeholders in the manufacturing industry would be afforded the opportunity to come face –to-face with investors in their various sectors to boost the bank’s clients capacity.
The forum will introduce the investors to the customers, for them to be acquainted with the modern trends of doing business in the world and to grow their business.
