In partnership with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Qatar, the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) last night successfully hosted its 12th Networking Event for Business and Financial Professionals in Doha. Over 350 distinguished guests from across the business and financial services communities in Qatar gathered in the Ritz-Carlton Doha to network and discuss business opportunities. Guests also had the opportunity to see the QFC’s refreshed logo and branding which projects the spirit of the QFC brand, “Facilitating Success.”

Shashank Srivastava, Chief Executive Officer of the QFC Authority, said: “Qatar’s success has gone hand-in-hand with rapid change and for almost a decade the QFC has also evolved, fulfilling its mandate to support business and the private sector. The business community has worked together very effectively to help turn Qatar into an extraordinary success story and networking events like this are an important part of how we facilitate business success in Qatar. Together with ICC Qatar, it is a privilege to ‘facilitate success’ by hosting this 12th business networking event.”

ICC Qatar represents the Qatar-based business community in bilateral, regional and multilateral meetings for promoting trade expansion and business networking.”
