The Strategy Conference is held in one of the 26 countries where the company has an operating presence and is attended by the QNB Senior Management team in Qatar, General Managers from relevant International Countries and Chief Executive Officers from Subsidiary companies. The purpose was to discuss relevant topics that will enhance the strategic development of the organization and help secure The Bank's Vision of "Becoming a MENA Icon". The two -day meeting was chaired by Ali Ahmed Al Kuwari, the Acting Group Chief Executive (AGCEO). Commenting on the significance of the Conference Al Kuwari said: "As the leading Financial Institution in The Region, we are delighted to be hosting this important event in Dubai. A key strength of the QNB Group is our commitment to stay close to and work together with our overseas branches, subsidiaries and associate companies. Elaborating Al Kuwari said,"An important Forum such as this allows us to both highlight the continuing impressive progress being made by The Group and focus upon the key strategic objectives that we still need to deliver. Doing all of this for the first time in Dubai has been an additional bonus", he added. The AGCEO also stated that the success of Qatar and Dubai in capturing two important global events (World Cup 2022 and Expo 2020) in the early 2020's bodes well for the future economic growth prosperity of the GCC. Indeed, the "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" theme of Expo 2020 was very relevant to the QNB Strategy Conference discussions taking place.
