The ‘2nd Business Continuity and Resilience Conference’ will be held on Tuesday entitled “Towards a Reliable Economy,” at the Sheraton Grand Doha under the patronage of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MCI).
The MCI said “Qatar has successfully established itself as one of the most powerful, diversified and competitive economies in the region, in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the Amir of the State of Qatar, to realise the Qatar National Vision 2030, which is aimed at transforming the State into a developed nation capable of achieving sustainable development and granting a good life to its people, one generation after the other.”
The MCI noted that the “wise policies” adopted by the State have contributed to supporting the private sector into becoming an active partner in the national economy, stemming from the country’s belief in the sector’s pivotal role in supporting the economy and achieving sustainable development.
In this context, the Ministry pointed out that it was keen on “developing advanced legislative and administrative mechanisms to support the performance” of private sector companies operating in the country.
The MCI reaffirmed its keenness on enhancing institutional practices that are set to support business continuity for companies and enable them to manage various risks in light of the constant changes witnessed by the global economy. This dovetails with the Ministry’s recognition of business continuity and risk management programmes as vital tools that support the competitiveness of companies and enhance their presence in local markets, in addition to helping them boost their contribution to the nation’s GDP, in order to support Qatar’s march towards achieving sustainable development.
On its part, the Qatari Businessmen Association “expressed its pride” to be the strategic partner for the conference.
QBA chairman HE Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim al-Thani said, “The Qatar Businessmen Association is pleased to be the strategic partner for the second edition of the ‘Business Continuity Conference’ in Qatar.
“QBA affirms its confidence that the conference will produce recommendations and results that benefit the business sector and contribute to enhancing its capacity and preparedness to address any potential risks or crises.”
Chairman of the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) Qatar Forum and of the conference Abdullatif Ali al-Yafei said the event is taking place at a critical time, given the great success achieved by Qatar both at the state level as a whole, and individually on the level of the public and private sectors, in tackling the consequences of the unjust blockade and neutralising any potential negative repercussions that could have affected the Qatari economy.
“Under the guidance of His Highness the Amir and our wise leadership, Qatar has managed to make the blockade a thing of the past, as its effects have been completely overcome and all official indicators confirm that the Qatari economy has never been stronger, with data released by various stakeholders, both in Qatar and international institutions, clearly indicating that the performance and development of various economic sectors is growing more rapidly than ever before.”
