The Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF), leading provider of education and development in the Region, has signed an agreement with the National Institute of Banking and Finance (NIBAF), training arm of the Central Bank of Pakistan, to provide quality training, capacity building and research for the Pakistani Banking and Finance sector.
