As part of the QIIB’s keenness to engage in all events that add value to nation building and community activities, the bank participated yesterday in the National Sport Day events.
The bank’s participation in the National Sport Day events carries the message of progress and positive spirit that Qatar seeks to convey at various regional and international levels, according to a statement.
A large number of QIIB executives and employees led by chief executive Dr Abdulbasit Ahmad al-Shaibei walked along the Doha Corniche, a popular destination for sport activities.
Al-Shaibei said: “Every year, we participate in the National Sport Day events as we are keen to draw inspiration from the noble values of sports such as interaction, co-operation, effort, determination, will, strength and victory.
“The advancement of sport in our country is no longer a subtitle to an important task. It has become the main headline, a focal point, and a vital part of the overall boom, which we are witnessing in all fields and forums under the guidance, leadership and vision of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.”
He added: “What Qatar has achieved in individual or team sport events, the 2019 Asian Cup football victory being the latest one, reflects the soundness of our rational leadership’s mindset and vision and the great success achieved in the implementation of Qatar’s ambitious plans, namely the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
“QIIB’s participation in the National Sport Day is not a one-off engagement, as we are keen to consolidate and strengthen the values and principles that sports represent in our banking institution and its role in our bank, one that serves the community to extent possible,” al-Shaibei said. “We call upon everyone to engage in sports for its benefits on the individual in particular and the society in general.”
“Our participation in the National Sport Day events is a call for everyone to adopt sport as a daily lifestyle, not an annual event,” the QIIB chief said. “Sport boosts physical and mental health. It also promotes a universal message of equality and co-operation between nations and people.”
