"I personally believe that the TradeQuest program is a unique and aspiring experience for the students that took part in it, as well as the investment advisors and school advisors, especially that most of those who participated in the program in the past have taken leading roles in many institutions today," H.E. Zayed Alzayani added.

"TradeQuest is one of the unique programs adopted by Bahrain Bourse that aims at increasing investment awareness, along with other initiatives that aim at achieving the same goal such as TradeQuest for university students, and the "Smart Investor" program that targets elementary school students." H.E. Zayed Alzayani said.
The Chief Executive Officer of Bahrain Bourse, Shaikh Khalifa Bin Ebrahim Al-Khalifa thanked H.E. Zayed bin Rashid Alzayani for his patronage and attendance to the ceremony. Sh. Khalifa also thanked H.E. the Governor of the Central Bank of Bahrain for his attendance and support to the TradeQuest Awards Ceremony which truly reflects the importance of the the program and the support that it gets from the officials in the Government of Bahrain which in return motivates us, as Bahrain Bourse, to continue organizing and developing this program to benefit all related parties.

Shaikh Khalifa assured, "We are looking forward to increase the cooperation and collaboration with various parties in order to launch more initiatives that aim at introducing saving and investment concepts to students in a way that will contribute to increasing their awareness of the role of institutions and other parties related to the economy of the Kingdom of Bahrain."
Shaikh Khalifa praised the support of the organizations sponsoring the program, and their commitment to the program since its launch in 1997, and thanked all the students, school advisors, and investment advisors who participated in the program, and wished them success.
