QFIB CEO to examine the role of Finance in Qatar’s Vision 2030 at Euromoney conference

QFIB is the associate sponsor of the inaugural Euromoney Qatar Conference, that will be held in Doha

Qatar First Investment Bank (QFIB), Qatar’s first independent Shari’ah compliant investment bank authorized by the QFC Regulatory Authority, is the associate sponsor of  the inaugural Euromoney Qatar Conference, that will be held in Doha at the Ritz-Carlton on 11-12 December 2012 under the theme ‘Global Finance: Re-Designed’.

In partnership with the Central Bank of Qatar, Euromoney will host the conference under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, State of Qatar.

QFIB Chief Executive Officer, Emad Mansour will join other panelists from leading Qatari institutions in a session titled ‘The Role of Finance in Qatar’s Vision 2030’.  The panel will highlight the role of the financial sector, and will examine Qatar competitive advantage, the importance of education and training in the successful realization of Qatar National Vision 2030.

Emad Mansour commented, “QFIB is proud to join other leading financial institutions in sponsoring the Euromoney conference.  We are great supporters of   such platforms that actively encourage dialogue on the future of finance both in Qatar and globally. Qatar has taken major strides in cushioning its economy against economic imbalances and in dealing with potential future issues relating to the global financial crisis.  Strict regulatory measures, liquidity provisions, enforcing transparency and corporate governance as well as constant monitoring and supervision of the financial sector are examples of preventive measures undertaken by the government to help Qatar achieve its National 2030 vision.”

The first of a series of events in the pipeline that encourage a healthy debate on the evolution of regional and global finance, Euromoney has collaborated with several Qatari government and private institutions to bring the conference to Doha. At the conference global experts will discuss themes including the global financial crisis, capital-export, Islamic finance and rating agencies.
