The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) Authority, a leading onshore financial and business centre in the region, held a special virtual celebration of Qatar National Day 2020.
Speaking on the occasion, QFC Authority Chief Executive Officer Yousuf Mohamed Al Jaida said, “Even though we are holding an unusual virtual celebration this year, I believe honouring Qatar and its people today is more worthy than ever. This year, Qatar National Day 2020 comes amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that has changed how we interact with one another and ushered in a new normal era to everyday life.”
“Against all odds, we are celebrating another year of our nation’s excellence, strength and economic resilience. Qatar is leading the economic recovery in the region with a promising outlook for 2021, reflected in the positive projections by world-renowned organisations such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank,” Jaida added.
Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority (QFCRA) Chief Executive Officer Michael Ryan said, “This year, Qatar has a lot to celebrate with the country’s collective efforts to curb the spread of the virus, and continued productivity and proactivity in every sector despite the challenges. On National Day, we celebrate Qatar’s history and legacy, but also its achievements and resilience in 2020.”
