The Euromoney Qatar Conference in Doha on December 9 and 10 will focus on Qatar’s post blockade strategy and its development as a sustainable economy.

Co-hosted by the Qatar Central Bank, the conference’s keynote speakers include HE the Minister of Finance Ali Sherif al-Emadi, and HE the Qatar Central Bank Governor Sheikh Abdulla bin Saoud al-Thani.
The two-day conference will provide a vast and detailed overview on strategy and finances in a series of workshops, talks, interviews and panel discussions.
A line-up of senior government officials and financiers will discuss topics such as “What will the next five year’s look like?”, “What investment is required to get to 2022?”, “What developments and innovations have been achieved and what next?”
Speakers also include Abdulla Mubarak al-Khalifa, QNB acting chief executive officer; Philippe Legrain, a critically acclaimed thinker and communicator with high-level policy experience, and Joseph Abraham, Commercial Bank group CEO.
Victoria Behn, director (Middle East and Africa) Euromoney Conferences said, “Our events aim to identify and explain the latest trends in global financial markets on the one hand, but also act as impartial forums for the rigorous exchange of ideas, on the other. This event is the essential meeting point for senior government officials, financial institutions, investors, and Qatari companies. The conference agenda addresses the future of Qatar’s economy, the post-blockade strategy, the path to the World Cup 2022, and Qatar’s Vision 2030.
“Qatar’s economic future is of central importance to attendees and the industries they work in. The future of oil/gas in conjunction with a diversifying modern economy through initiatives such as fintech, sustainability, and Vision 2030 have a direct impact on the business prospects and performance of the companies represented at the conference.
“This event is of the utmost importance for any Qatari business looking to grow and expand in an uncertain and rapidly changing economic environment, both globally and regionally. It is an opportunity to learn about Qatar’s place in the global financial system and new initiatives to enhance it.”
