Bosnia names Turkish bank as Best Bank of Year

Turkey's state-run Ziraat Bankasi has been named "the Best Bank of the Year," and its director-general "the Best Manager of the Year" in Bosnia by Bosnia-Herzegovina's Civil Service Agency.

The prize was presented on Friday to Turkish Ziraat Bosnia's Director-General Kenan Bozkurt in a ceremony in Banja Luka, the second largest city in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the administrative capital of Republika Srpska, with the participation of high-level officials from the Federation of Bosnia-Herzegovina and undersecretary with the Turkish Embassy in Sarajevo, Emre Zeki, as well as managers from the country's leading business groups.

The event's organizer, Pane Skrbic, said the agency had awarded the Turkish Ziraat Bosnia due to its strong capital position and its profitability at a time when a global economic recession had hit banks hard in Bosnia, which had seen a lost of 39 million euros in the banking sector in the third quarter of this year.

Turkish Ziraat Bosnia has been operating in Bosnia-Herzegovina since 1997 and it has 21 branches in the country.
