Our partners – Bank Of Sharjah
An essential support
Bank of Sharjah is continuing its partnership with France this year by providing support as part of its cultural programming.
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.
L’Institut Français des Emirats Arabes Unis se donne pour missions de favoriser le développement et la diffusion des savoirs dans les domaines de l’art, l’éducation, du livre, de la musique et du multimédia. Il accorde également un intérêt particulier à la valorisation des arts, des savoir-faire et du patrimoine.
Le soutient de Bank of Sharjah permet à l’Institut Français UAE de mener différents projets culturels fondés sur le partage des connaissances et des compétences, à savoir des expositions temporaires ainsi que des programmes de sensibilisation artistique et de formation.
