The Qatar Financial Centre (QFC), one of the world’s leading and fastest growing business and financial centres, celebrated the occasion of Qatar National Day by hosting an internal event for its entities.

The event came as part of the QFC’s efforts to further strengthen unity among its staff and community, through a series of national celebrations. The event also served as an opportunity to showcase Qatar’s history and promote a cultural dialogue. During the celebrations the QFC showcased a number of startups from Bedaya, an initiative aimed at empowering, supporting and guiding the youth of Qatar to launch their business.

Speaking at the event, QFC Authority Chief Executive Officer, Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, stated: “This year, our Qatar National Day theme, “promise of prosperity and glory” couldn’t be timelier. It is a clear call to all of us, to stand together to face and conquer any and all challenges to ensure the continued rise and prosperity of our beloved Qatar. These last 6 months have been the perfect example of how we can overcome any barriers when we stand united in front of our challenges, and I am proud and thankful to all of you for your efforts.”
