He said “the Silver Sponsorship reflects our company’s commitment to ensuring safety of the community residing not only at The Pearl but also around Qatar. We are, therefore, delighted to extend our support to research initiatives and discussions that promote traffic safety and the development of effective medicine in cases of injury. The conference will represent a great opportunity for exchanges between experts from many disciplines connected to traffic safety and traffic injuries.”
The sponsorship deal with QIC was signed at its headquarters by al- Malki and Salem al-Mannai, Deputy Group CEO of Qatar Insurance Group Mena Region, in the presence of Captain Mubarak Salim al-Bouainain, Assistant Director of Public Relations Department at the Ministry of Interior.
