Colombo – The ABA Policy Advocacy Committee recently formed a discussion group to promote cooperation among member banks in understanding business process re-engineering initiatives.

The ABA Discussion Group is being led by Mr. Dilshan Rodrigo, Chief Operating Officer of Hatton National Bank. Several member banks have designated officers to make a significant contribution to the activities of the group.

Currently, the members are: Norman Martin C. Reyes, Chief Marketing Officer/ SVP & Head Marketing Group, Philippine National Bank; Shing-Shiang Ou, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Bank of Taiwan; Karen Ho, S.A.V.P. & Deputy Department Manager, FX Planning Department, Int’l Banking Division, The First Commercial Bank; Shiyaz Mohamed Didi, Head of Business Systems, Bank of Maldives Plc.; Bob Chen, Senior Vice President/ Head of Int’l Trade Ops Dept., CTBC Bank Co., Ltd. The ABA continues to encourage collaboration among ABA member banks in achieving transformational changes through the following measures:

  1. Encouraging a sharing of insights/experiences among member banks on their own efforts/initiatives to achieve transformation change given the unique market pressures experienced in their respective countries/regions.
  2. Providing suggestions on fast-track implementation of change initiatives to achieve faster results.
  3. Sharing and exchanging views on continuing internal team effort vs. hiring consultants to support transformational change- when, whom to select, experiences, learnings and expected cost benefits.
  4. Forming an ABA Discussion Group for an ongoing structured dialogue for sharing of best practices and developing specific learning forum on transformational change through business process re-engineering efforts.
