Dear Professional Colleagues,

The COVID-19 situation continues to affect us with cases steadily increasing and even deaths rising. At the same time, one is pleasantly surprised to see people now coming up with a positive attitude to attempt to resume normal life to the maximum extent possible, while taking adequate precautions and making sure all the rules and regulations are followed both, in letter and spirit. Indeed, this is the message of positivity that will help humankind overcome this challenge.

The month of September ended with completing 10 CPE Virtual CPE Programmes which is the maximum number of programmes a branch can conduct in a single month. Thanks to the whole team for making it happen.
