Manama, Aug. 22 (BNA): The reflection of the growing global option for cashless transactions on the Bahraini economy in recent years has been highlighted at a meeting hosted by the Rotary Club of Manama (RCM).

"There is a global trend to depend more on cashless transactions, especially amidst the unusual circumstances imposed by the outbreak of Covid-19 since the beginning of this year,” BENEFIT CEO Abdulwahed Al Janahi, the online meeting chief guest, said.

“As a company specialised in electronic financial transactions, we have launched several leading and innovative initiatives that enable the public of completing their transactions electronically, serving the purpose of social distancing and contributing to the international efforts devoted to curb the spread of viruses and diseases.”

RCM President Marjan Modara said that the club, through its weekly meetings, aims to shed light on essential topics that benefit the community and contribute to its flourishing, with a focus on education, health, social matters and more.

She added that RCM has scheduled several topics to be highlighted in its upcoming meetings, hosting experts and specialists who would enrich the discussion.

The meeting brought together RCM members and guests, as well as presidents and members of the Rotary clubs in Bahrain.

Founded in 1965, RCM consists of 58 members who have been actively participating and organising key community projects for the past five decades, with the aim of contributing towards societal needs.

The Club forms part of Rotary International which is the world’s first service club organisation and includes over 1.2 million members.
