Abu Dhabi, 19 May 2011: Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB), in an initiative unique to the UAE banking industry, today held a UAE National Development Forum for all managerial and executive Emiratis within its workforce. The forum took place at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi and was attended by H.E.

Guests at the forum were also honoured with the presence of ADCBs Board of Directors, ADCBs Chief Executive Office, Mr. Ala'a Eraiqat, its Senior Management team and all executive and managerial Nationals.
The UAE National Development Forum offered Emiratis working at ADCB the opportunity to strengthen their network with each other, as well as with senior management and members of external government organisations. While showcasing ADCBs latest strategy on Emiratisation, the forum also presented key business trends and information on the development needs of Nationals across the UAE.
ADCB Nationals participated in an interactive development workshop and listened to a presentation from the Banks Chairman, Mr. Eissa Al Suwaidi. Other presentations were delivered by the Head of Human Resources Group, Mr. Ali Darwish, and two senior business managers.
Chairman of ADCB, Mr. Eissa Al Suwaidi said: The UAE National Development Forum was yet another step forwards in ADCBs ongoing efforts to support Emiratisation initiatives within the banking industry. UAE banks have a responsibility to support and educate existing and potential National employees through innovative initiatives and we feel the forum achieved this by further strengthening the National networks within the industry.
