The chief guest said that the purpose of this conference is to develop the risk culture, which will facilitate the development of a strong risk management policy and infrastructure within the bank. Capacity building through knowledge sharing is essential to addressing various risks. Therefore, we need to increase the capacity of all our executives and officers to strengthen risk management activities.
Besides, awareness should be created among employees about the risks in day-to-day banking operations and ways to overcome them. This will improve various risk ratings, such as the Camels Rating, Core Risk Rating, and Comprehensive Risk Rating of the bank.
