Qatar, with huge investment and special focus on the overall development of the country, has become an ideal source of inspiration for others in various fields, including sports.





The country, as a result of its wise leadership, has also become a global destination for athletes from different countries, noted a top official of QIIB who participated in the Qatar National Sport Day (QNSD), yesterday.

QIIB perticipated the QNSD by organising an event that reflects the bank’s keenness to engage in the various activities of interest to the Qatari society, particularly sports, in light of Qatar’s evolution into a global destination of choice for different types of sports.

A large number of employees and executive management team led by Chief Executive Officer Dr. Abdulbasit Ahmed Al Shaibei walked along the Doha Corniche as part of the Qatar National Sports Day celebrations.

In the morning, the participants gathered in front of QIIB’s headquarters, in Grand Hamad Street, and then walked to Doha Corniche where the sports events took place as part of the Qatar National Sports Day celebrations.

Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Al Shaibei said:

“Under the leadership of the Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, our country has now become an example in various fields, including sports. Qatar has become a global destination for athletes from different countries. Our country is now regularly hosting world championships and other events in some of the most important sports disciplines.

He said:

“At QIIB, we are keen to participate in the various activities that promote the values represented by sport, such as excellence, success, dedication, patience, perseverance, achievement, tolerance and ethics. This stems from our belief that institutions must play a complementary role, regardless of their functions. Banking and economic, social and development activities and sports play complementary roles and serve the community with all its components.



“Qatar National Vision 2030, which is being achieved, gave sport a great boost considering the positive impact it has on individuals and society. It symbolises human cooperation and interaction, in the local community, among citizens and residents, and at the international level, between different peoples.”
