Maintaining trust, cooperation and professional ethics among its members


As business people who believe that unemployment, division and poverty are at the heart of society's problems, we regard having an effective role in solving these problems, especially poverty, as a responsibility in the society we live in. That’s why SATBA also supports initiatives those will contribute to the educational and social development and social peace that will increase the level of economic prosperity of its communities.
