Diversity in the customer base and the enhancement of the bank’s banking activity are at the top of the bank’s current priorities, which will contribute to supporting digital transformation and financial inclusion plans. This comes in light of the state and CBE’s strategic direction to maximise the benefit for all sectors of society, and achieve sustainable growth.
El-Garhy said that the bank’s launch of its new identity and ambitious strategy came after the implementation of a comprehensive restructuring plan. This included not only changing the identity and brand of the bank, but also developing the infrastructure and engineering and preparing an integrated strategy.

This took place with the aim of competing and strengthening the presence of MID Bank as a comprehensive bank for banking services in the Egyptian market.
At the same time, it was also to keep pace with the CBE’s plans and ambitions in the process of financial inclusion for all sectors and groups of society.
The bank is looking to additionally put in place a sustainable plan to empower its employees, upgrade their technological skills. This will also help build new workers through training courses, to keep pace with technological progress and digital transformation.
