Description

The Emirates Banks Association (EBA) is a key representative body established in 1982, comprising member banks across the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It serves as a unified platform to promote the interests of the banking sector, enhance cooperation among its members, and uphold high standards of banking practices. Led by a Board of Directors chaired by H.E. Abdul Aziz Abdullah Al Ghurair, the EBA engages in advocacy, policy-making, and oversight of banking activities. It supports the UAE's economic development by fostering innovation and collaboration within the financial industry, while also playing a crucial role in shaping regulatory frameworks that govern banking operations in the country.

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the second president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of Abu Dhabi from November 2004 until his death in May 2022, was the eldest son of Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE's first president. He played a key role as crown prince in the late 1990s due to his father's health issues, and officially assumed leadership in Abu Dhabi in 2004. During his tenure, he oversaw Abu Dhabi's cultural and academic expansion, including the establishment of institutions like the Louvre Abu Dhabi and Etihad Airways. Under his presidency, the UAE became a significant economic force, and Khalifa was known for his pro-Western stance, deftly navigating regional politics and strengthening ties with the United States and Israel. Despite a stroke in 2014, he remained involved in ceremonial duties, with his half-brother, Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, handling day-to-day affairs. Khalifa's death in 2022 marked the succession of his brother, Mohamed.
