Karachi July 30, 2012:  In a short span of ten months NBP’s official facebook fan page has registered more than 13000 members. The reason for such significant growth is mainly due to the fact that not just official information on NBP’s operations, services and products is given but also the fan page offers coverage to positive news and developments taking place in the country. In addition to this various Public Service Messages are also posted on a very regular basis.

According to Corporate Communications Division of NBP, the fan page is updated on a very regular basis for bank’s fans to remain updated on its products and services. We also feel that being Nation’s Bank it is our duty to highlight any positive development taking place in the country. Significant achievements made by Pakistanis in any part of the world are also posted regularly and that is one reason our fan page has registered good number of likes in a short span of time. In a way we are also focused on image building effort of the country.
