The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), one of the world’s leading and fastest growing onshore business and financial centres, has hosted the president of the World Economic Forum (WEF), Borge Brende during his visit to the country.
During the multilateral meeting, senior representatives from a number of Qatari entities, which also serve in a member capacity of WEF, similar to the QFC, discussed a number of key issues related to the forum's initiatives, crucially the Qatari ecosystem and the future engagements with the WEF.
“It is an honour to host Brende and other high-level representatives to discuss Qatar’s buoyant ecosystem, and how Qatar can contribute to the WEF agenda. As a member of the WEF, the QFC is continually working towards engaging with international stakeholders that share the same vision of helping to shape global, regional and industry agendas,” QFC chief executive Yousuf Mohamed al-Jaida said.
The meeting was also attended by Sheikha Alanoud bint Hamad al-Thani, managing director, business development, QFC and Sarah al-Dorani, chief marketing and corporate communications officer, QFC; as well as senior representatives from a number of Qatari entities including the Alfardan Group, Barwa, Commercial Bank, Doha Bank, Ooredoo, Muntajat, Qatar Airways, Qatar Development Bank, QFC Regulatory Authority, Qatar Foundation, Qatar Investment Authority, Qatar Islamic Bank, QNB and Qatar Petroleum.
“The WEF has made great strides in providing a platform for leaders across a variety of groups such as business and government to come together in a positive way. Through Qatar’s continued involvement with WEF, we are able to build on the work we are doing with other member organisations to impact positive global change,” al-Jaida said.
