Conference to outline Qatar's economic vision
Doha, October 28, 2013
A major conference to outline directions for Qatar’s economy, with focus on strategy and regulatory changes, will take place in Doha in December.
The Euromoney Qatar 2013 Conference, will bring together leading players and thinkiers in finance and will be held under the patronage of Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Prime Minister of Qatar, who will open the event with a major address on the economic vision of the country.
Co-hosted by Qatar Central Bank, the conference will be held at the Ritz Carlton Doha on December 10 and 11. It is being held at a crucial stage in the on-going story of Qatar, as the country embarks on a new wave of regulatory changes and enhancements to manage the evolution of its financial sector and support its plans for economic development, said a senior official.
Richard Banks, regional director, Euromoney Conferences, said: “We are privileged and proud to have the Prime Minister as the patron for this year’s event. His presence – in one of his first major addresses to an international financial audience – will provide essential insights into the future plans and direction of Qatar’s ambitious plans for growth.”
Qatar’s real GDP expanded at a six per cent pace (year-on-year) in Q3 2013, according to QNB Group – with double-digit growth in construction, transport, communication, financial, real estate, and business services.
The conference will shed light on how the country is executing its plan to harmonise the existing national regulatory authorities - Qatar Central Bank, the Qatar Financial Centre regulator, and Qatar Financial Markets Authority, and the impact it will have on international organisations.
It will also discuss the new framework being created by financial authorities for the regulation of Islamic Banking, under the Central Bank Law, Law No. 13 of 2012. - TradeArabia News Service
