The stand at Marina Mall will enable us to directly communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds, raising their financial awareness and providing them with the necessary skills to manage their finances better."
Dirhami was launched by ADCED in December 2010 in line with the Abu Dhabi 2030 Economic Vision.
