French-Emirati Cultural Dialogue 2018-2019
Bank of Sharjah celebrates this year its 45 years of partnership with France and embodies the best example of a continuous Franco-Emirati dialogue.
It is a story that began in 1973 as a result of an accord between the Government of Sharjah and BNP Paribas to create the first financial institution in the Emirate of Sharjah and the fifth in the United Arab Emirates. Bank of Sharjah quickly became a leading player in supporting the various fields of French-UAE bilateral cooperation, not only at the banking and commercial level but also in cultural and educational fields.
Bank of Sharjah adopted this approach in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, who was known for his great admiration for French culture and richness. H.H. established through his passion for knowledge and culture the advanced level of all exchanges between the various institutions of Sharjah and France.
This year, through our support for the activities of the French-Emirati cultural dialogue 2018-2019, we continue our usual commitment to strengthening cooperation with various French institutions based on the bilateral cultural ties that unite us and our adherence to the great French-Emirati values.
