Abdul Majeed Ismail Al Fahim, was one of the consultants at the beginning of the work of BBI Bank in Bosnia, the first and currently the only bank in Bosnia, which operates on the principles of Islamic banking. Al Fahim, in an interview for the "Leader" says that the support and the establishment of banks in Bosnia was done with the intention of promoting the concept of Islamic banking to Europe through Bosnia.
Even if he only stayed in Bosnia for a day, Al Fahim said that he had a sufficient view from the plane to see that the investment potential of Bosnia is huge and that it is only a matter of time before it is detected and exploited, especially in the tourism sector.
"I know a lot of people from Bosnia, and I have read about that country, but I did not expect it to be so beautiful. I am very impressed with landscapes that I saw, with the mountains that surround your valley. I think that the mountains are great opportunities for tourism development because I believe that many people will come to them to rest and enjoy the snow. The whole region can become a strong tourist destination. This is a great opportunity for your country. You have a lot of thermal springs, which can also be connected with tourism, but also treatment and all that should be used" - said Al Fahim.
"As far as I know, Bosnia has great human resources. I have experience with one of Bosnians who ran one of my factories in Abu Dhabi. When he went for hollidays we really felt his absence, and we hardly waited for him to return. So I have a good opinion of employees from Bosnia" - said Al Fahim.
