On the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the bank, Chairman Chandra Prasad Dhakal said that it has become easier to provide modern, quality and reliable banking services to the customers after the merger, adding that Global IME Bank has long experience in mergers and acquisitions.
Chairman Dhakal said that after the merger / acquisition with various banks and financial institutions, the capital of the bank has increased and the competitiveness, financial, human resource, technical and other capabilities of the bank have increased.
He said that the banks have continued to provide services to their customers and clients even during the pandemic. Additionally, this has increased the confidence of the public towards banks and financial institutions.
“Everyone will remember our service in the most complex and tragic global situation of Covid-19. It has established that banking is not only a business but also a friend at times of crisis , “he said.” We will continue to strengthen and clarify this with our behaviour and services.
Dhakal, who is also the senior vice-president of the Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI),explained that the bank has become support at the time of crisis to businessmen by giving various concessions and discounts to businesses and entrepreneurs during the pandemic.
“During the crisis, the banks acted as drivers of the private sector by extending the loan instalment and interest repayment period of the private sector as per the directives of the Nepal Rastra Bank. This has given us the knowledge that if we, the private sector, face the crisis together, we can certainly overcome the potential crisis in the future or minimize its damage. We have also received the message that we must move forward together, not rupture in times of crisis. ” He added.
In his congratulatory message, Ratna Raj Bajracharya, Chief Executive Officer of the Bank, said that Global IME Bank has become one of the best, strongest and strongest banks in the country after various mergers and acquisitions.

Stating that the management of the bank is focused on merger and post-merger management, he said that the bank will be established as the best and strongest bank in the country in the coming days.
“There is still a lot of work to be done after the merger,” said Bajracharya, Chief executive officer. “Once the merger is properly managed, Global IME Bank will be stronger than it is now.”
