Arab Banks

The modern system of Arab banks was created in Egypt in the late 19th century, with the campaign of modernizing the country. Today Arab banks are among the most pioneering in Developing Countries, and some are competitors to major international banks.A new system of banking has also been introduced by the Arab World, to suit its Islamic laws regarding the creation of wealth, thus Islamic Banks were created.
