We are proud of the achievements of Qatari women in various political, economic, social and educational fields, and their contribution to the realisation of the human pillar of Qatar National Vision 2030,” al-Mansoori said.
Stressing that QSE has a clear interest in empowering women to carry out pioneering tasks in the Qatari capital market, he said the stock exchange believes in the importance of women participation in the trading market, economic activity, sustainable development and innovation.
