He continued:

“At QNB Finansbank, we always seek solutions that fit our clients’ pace of life. This is why new collaborations, innovation, and advancement in technological applications have paramount importance. Working together with Western Union, an institution that enables international money transfers, and launching this application for the first time in Turkey is a result of this pursuit. The world is now getting much smaller. You may be residing overseas and want to send money to your family in Turkey, or you may want to send pocket money to your child studying abroad.
