A delegation representing Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) participated in the 53rd World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, held from 16 to 20 January 2023 under the theme ‘Cooperation in a Fragmented World’.
This year’s WEF annual meeting focused on a number of critical issues ranging from geopolitical challenges, global economic events, climate change, food security, and globalisation, and saw the participation of more than 2,700 leaders from 130 countries.
The delegation is headed by QFC Chief Executive Officer Yousuf Mohamed Al Jaida and included Sheikha Alanoud bint Hamad Al Thani, deputy CEO, as well as chief business officer at QFC and a World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leader.
During the Annual Meeting, Al Jaida and Sheikha Alanoud engaged in a number of discussions, private meetings, and bilateral talks with corporate CEOs, executive directors, as well as finance and economic leaders, exploring prospects of cooperation and potential business opportunities in light of the unique services and benefits QFC offers to companies and foreign investors looking at establishing a business in Qatar, a market ranking first among the top FDI destinations globally in 2022.
They also highlighted the QFC efforts to attract investments in vital sectors such as banking and finance, energy, infrastructure, agriculture, transportation, and aviation, as well as technology and digital sectors, in line with Qatar’s 2030 National Vision diversification strategy.
