Emirates NBD, a leading banking group in the region, has signed a Premier Partnership agreement with Expo 2020 Dubai to become its Official Banking Partner.
The partnership marks Emirates NBD’s long-term commitment to supporting the growth and development of the UAE, in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The partnership agreement was signed by His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee, and Hesham Abdulla Al Qassim, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Emirates NBD Group.
Emirates NBD will be the exclusive onsite banking partner, providing ATM machines and an onsite ‘Bank of the Future’ where the UAE-based banking group will offer a variety of services to visitors, participants and organisers, such as merchant account operations, Islamic banking and foreign exchange services.
The partnership with Expo also marks a significant milestone in Emirates NBD’s own path to growth. Formed in 2007 with the merger between Emirates Bank International (EBI) and the National Bank of Dubai (NBD), Emirates NBD has grown into a business that today has a brand value of Dh12.5 billion ($3.4 billion), and is recognised as a standard-bearer for banking and financial services across the region and internationally.
