In order to consolidate this position, in an environment marked by the establishment of first-rate foreign banks and the entry on the market of several new local banks, the BEA adopted an ambitious strategic plan which is mainly focused on innovation, compliance with international regulations, promotion of human resources and consolidation of customer relations. A benchmark bank at national level, the BEA also asserts itself as a bank with an international dimension thanks to a very dense network of prestigious foreign correspondents (La Société Générale Paris, UBAF, UBAE, Banco Popular, Bank Of Tokyo, BACB, Banque Cantonale de Genève,…). The constantly renewed and increased confirmation lines that its correspondents place at its disposal, testify to the confidence that the BEA has been able to acquire and consolidate with its partners.
