Euromoney in key Qatar events partnership
Doha, October 8, 2012
Euromoney Conferences, the leading organiser of financial events in both developed and developing markets, has announced a major partnership with Qatari institutions, to bring a series of global financial events into the Gulf state.
The first event in this three-year project will be the Euromoney Qatar Conference, under the theme “Global Finance: Re-Designed” to be held at The Ritz-Carlton in Doha from December 11 to 12. It will be supported by an extensive online presence.
At the first event, experts from around the world will discuss the global financial crisis and the new global economic pressures and opportunities facing dynamic high-growth nations like Qatar, said the events arm of Euromoney Institutional Investor.
Euromoney will bring its editorial expertise, financial focus and global network to Doha to work with Qatari government and private institutions to influence the debate on the evolution of global finance.
The Euromoney Qatar Conference is co-hosted by Qatar Central Bank, with senior lead sponsor Qatar National Bank; lead sponsors Commercial Bank of Qatar and International Bank of Qatar; co-sponsor Qatar Islamic Bank; and associate sponsor Qatar First Investment Bank.
The Qatar Central Bank, under the patronage of Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, has been the driving force behind this initiative and has mobilised much of Qatar’s financial community to contribute and take part alongside their international counterparts, said a top official.
Euromoney’s regional director Richard Banks said the company was very much excited about its first large-scale project with Qatar.
"We know that with the close support of the government and the Central Bank we can add a great deal not only to the debate on the future of global finance but also to the development of Qatar both as a financial market and as a global investor," Banks added.-TradeArabia News Service
