DOHA: Senior officials of Qatar Finance and Business Academy (QFBA) held a meeting with the visiting Mayor of the City of London, Alderman Roger Gifford and his delegates here recently, a press statement said yesterday.
At the meeting, many heads of the departments of QFBA and representatives from some of the UK’s leading companies and financial institutions discussed potential business ventures and partnerships.
The attendees also considered future businesses with an emphasis on international prospects, the state of the international market and international players in the financial sector.
Taking this one step further, QFBA is seeking to bring international experts, industry recognised standards of conduct and required skills into the local market.
Throughout the course of the evening, QFBA asserted its ongoing commitment to the local financial services industry. Further, QFBA is working towards fulfilling its objective of having Qatar become very well integrated with the global market.
Firms that attended the event included Brewin Dolphin, Trowers & Hamlins LLP, Thomson Reuters, BG Consulting Group and Integro Insurance Brokers. Aspects of the financial sector such as that evolution of the market were covered at Wednesday’s meeting.
QFBA took away from the meeting both business and development prospects. QFBA will continue to develop, design and then deliver programmes which will be able to have a positive impact on a professional’s life, career and organisation.
“QFBA continues to invest in the local Qatari talent pool by helping participating members hone their finance and business skills. Once its members are equipped with this invaluable skill set, it means that they are ready to compete at a local, regional and global level,” the release said.
In addition, QFBA maintains its unwavering dedication to creating a high standard professional community of great practitioners, coaches, academics and of course, learners. The event was held at QFBA’s premises at West Bay.
