CBK Honors Distinguished Supporters of "Diraya" Campaign in its Second Year

The Central Bank of Kuwait (CBK) honored Kuwaiti banks for supporting the banking awareness campaign "Diraya” by leveraging all their capabilities and tools to spread awareness and increase financial literacy through digital and social media as well as activities to engage the community on a wide scale. The campaign was launched by CBK in collaboration with Kuwait Banking Association (KBA) and all local banks.

CBK praised the exemplary efforts by Kuwait Finance House, the National Bank of Kuwait and the Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait, and the level of interaction with, and response to, the campaign by all Kuwaiti banks, adding that the efforts made by all the banks contributed to the success of the campaign and delivering its messages to the widest segment of banking sector customers.

The CBK concluded by affirming that it spares no effort to spread financial and banking awareness and protect customers' rights in light of the development of banking services and associated risks, most notably electronic fraud and its various techniques that call for continuous awareness and expanding the role of Kuwaiti banks in social responsibility.

It is noteworthy that “Diraya” Campaign cooperated with official and private entities including the Ministry of Information, the Ministry of Interior, the Capital Markets Authority, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, the Kuwait Financial Intelligence Unit, the Kuwait Anti-Corruption Authority (Nazaha), the Credit Information Network (Ci-net), Zain, Kuwait Telecommunications Company (STC) and National Mobile Telecommunications Company (Ooredoo) as well as Tamdeen Real Estate Company, National Real Estate Company and Al-Hamra Mall.
