QNB Group, the largest financial institution in the Middle East and Africa, recently organised an economic seminar in co-operation with the Institute of International Finance (IIF), the US-based economic think-tank.

The event was attended by Sheikh Mohamed bin Hamad al-Thani, deputy governor of the Qatar Central Bank; Abdulla Mubarak al-Khalifa, executive general manager – chief business officer at QNB Group; and Timothy Adams, president and chief executive of the IIF; along with several C-suite and senior officials of financial institutions in Qatar.

The seminar highlighted recent macroeconomic developments in the United States, the current US administration's approach to international trade policy, emerging market economies and the economic developments in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

It also provided a platform for dialogue and exchange of views on global economic issues and their implications on the financial sector, as well as the global financial regulation outlook and its effects on the international banking and financial system.

The IIF is the global association of the financial industry, with close to 450 members from 70 countries. Its mission is to support the financial industry in the prudent management of risks; to develop sound industry practices; and to advocate for regulatory, financial and economic policies that are in the broad interests of its members and foster global financial stability and sustainable economic growth.
