The Singapore Business Council in Qatar (SBCQ) was launched at the Singapore Embassy in Qatar under the patronage of Singapore ambassador Jai S Sohan.
The SBCQ aims to foster closer relationship between business communities in Singapore and Qatar as well as promote and develop mutual investments and bilateral trade opportunities of both countries.
The SBCQ will also provide guidelines and support to interested business parties seeking to explore opportunities in Qatar and Singapore.
The SBCQ is organised under the patronage of the Singapore Embassy in Qatar and registered in the Qatar Financial Centre as a non-profit business council.
All office bearers are Singaporean volunteers currently working in Qatar’s business sector.
The post of president is held by Joseph Abraham, Group CEO, Commercial Bank Qatar and vice-president by Susanna Toi, chief business officer, Taleb Group.
The launch of the SBCQ follows the visit of the Singapore Foreign Minister Vivien Balakrishnan to Qatar last week and reflects the importance of Qatar to the Singapore government and business community.
