The Qatar Financial Centre, one of the world's leading and fastest growing onshore business and financial centres, recently addressed an audience comprising high-level Korean officials including ministers and business leaders during the Qatar-Korea Business Forum.

 

The forum was inaugurated by H.E. Mr. Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari, Minister of Commerce and Industry, and included networking sessions and panel discussions that explored investment opportunities in Qatar, as well as the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and smart cities on business. 

 

Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, Chief Executive Officer, QFC, joined a number of stakeholders to discuss investment pathways to Qatar. The CEO was joined by Sheikh Ali Alwaleed Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer, Investment Promotion Agency; Khalid Abdulla Al-Mana, Executive Director of Business Finance, Qatar Development Bank; and Hamad Al Mohannadi, Business development Manager, Qatar Free Zones Authority.

 

Other participants included H.E. Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani, Chairman, Qatari Business Association; H.E. Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al Thani, Chairman, Qatar Chamber; and H.E. Sung Yun-mo, South Korean Minister of Trade, Industry & Energy; as well as H.E. Yongmaan Park, Chairman, Korea Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

 

Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, Chief Executive Officer, QFC said: 

 

Qatar has invested significantly in its economy, generating GDP growth that is expected to hit an impressive $225 billion by 2020. This growth unlocked many investment opportunities in the country, and has already attracted the attention of foreign investors interested in establishing themselves in the Middle East.

Al-Jaida added: 

 

"The Qatar Financial Centre is committed to continuing to develop and strengthen these relations, and is already home to several key Korean businesses such as Hanwha Techwin and HAEAHN Architecture Inc. We look forward to welcoming even more businesses from South Korea to the QFC in the future."
