Speaking during the Exim Bank Tanzania 15th Anniversary Staff Celebration held in Dar es Salaam as well as other branches in the country over the weekend under the theme 'A Brilliant Past, A Golden Future', Mr Manek said his bank will invest massively in staff training to enable the bank provide unmatched and tailor-made services.
"We have moved ahead with our vision of being the preferred bank and we have already established an academy called 'Exim Academy' in Dar es Salaam that will offer hands-on training to all our staff. We believe competent staff can be a big catalyst to the bank's growth.
He said his bank has registered satisfactory progress in all major areas that include deposits and assets among others in the last 15 years adding that would not have been possible without committed and dedicated staff.
"The growth we have been able to register in the past 15 years however would not come without hard work and dedication of our staff. My plea is that employees should strive at growing the Exim Bank brand in the years ahead," he added.
The Exim Bank Managing Director, Mr Anthony Grant, however said his bank will always strive to improve staff working conditions and expertise that will in turn enhance service delivery and customer satisfaction.
"Looking back at the 15 years of Exim Bank journey, our hearts are filled with thanksgiving and gratitude for all the shareholders, partners, customers and staff who have offered support in one way or another," Mr Grant said.
He said Exim Bank looks forward to being an integral part within the East African Community (EAC) providing unmatched financial services within the region and beyond.
