Chairman Message

I have the pleasure, on behalf of my fellow board members and myself, to welcome you on Kuwait Banking Association (KBA) Homepage.

Since the establishment of Kuwait Banking Association (KBA) in 2001, member banks have been working closely to achieve KBA’s vision and mission aiming at boosting cooperation among local banks, and highlighting banks’ role and contributions to the national economy and society development. Furthermore, this cooperation has always aimed at supporting and enhancing the performance of Kuwaiti banking sector through constant and constructive collaboration with the Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) towards underpinning the national economy’s growth fundamentals, as well as monetary and financial pillars.

Driven from its important national role and responsibility towards efficient and positive contribution to the economic development, KBA endeavors to interact with the decision makers and highly influent parties in governmental institutions. KBA is also willing to provide its opinion and in depth vision on the prevailing economic and financial situations to the political leadership; i.e., H.H. Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah - the Amir of Kuwait, as well as his Crown Prince and Prime Minister, may Allah protect and support them all.

 KBA’s achievements are attributable to many partners in success. In this regard, I would like to thank KBA’s board members for the role they played in attaining KBA’s objectives. I hope the coming years will witness a new phase of growth, development and further advancement for the banking sector. Furthermore, I would like to express my gratitude to the banks’ representatives in KBA’s various committees for the rich discussions and suggestions they made in banking sector’s related issues. In addition, I thank KBA’s Secretary General and staff for the role they played in achieving KBA’s objectives. Optimistically, I look forward for further contribution of KBA’s role in maintaining the stability of the banking sector, and supporting banking business operations which will materialize in further achievements and in a way that would serve the best interest of our national economy. I supplicate Allah, the Almighty, to keep our beloved country safe, stable and prosperous under the wise leadership of H.H. Amir of Kuwait and his Crown Prince.
