Qatar Fund For Development (QFFD) and Doha Institute for Graduate Studies on Thursday signed a cooperation agreement to implement a professional development program.

The agreement was signed by the QFFD Deputy Director General of the Department of Shared Services, Mansour Abdullah al-Dhaimi and Doha Institute for Graduate Studies Administration and Finance vice president Dr Hend al-Muftah.

Under the agreement, the Doha Institute will set and implement a professional development program for QFFD.

Al-Dhaimi said that this agreement aims at enhancing knowledge and capacity building in the field of international development and QFFD looks forward to seeing its results, which will undoubtedly contribute to raising local capacities in the Fund.

The seven-month program will end with an assessment of participants and an exchange of advice on issues of concern to QFFD and its staff.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between the institute and the QFFD in January 2018 to enhance academic cooperation and to take advantage of common possibilities to support scientific research.
