Qatar Chamber Takes Part in the ‘World Entrepreneurs Investment Forum’ in Bahrain

Qatar Chamber has participated in the activities of the 5th World Entrepreneurs Investment Forum (WEIF), which is being held in Manama until May 16 in conjunction with the 33rd Arab Leaders Summit.

The chamber’s delegation, led by board member Abdulrahman bin Abduljaleel al-Abdulghani, included board member Abdulrahman al-Ansari and acting general manager Ali Bu Sherbak al-Mansouri.

The delegation also included Noora al-Awlan, director of the Research and Studies Department, and Alsayed Rajab, adviser to Qatar Chamber chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim al-Thani.

Held under the theme ‘Achieving the SDGs through Fostering Innovation and Economic Growth’, the forum was organised by the General Secretariat at the UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office in Bahrain, in partnerships with the League of Arab States, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce in Bahrain, the Union of Arab Chambers, the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa, the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce, and a number of local, regional, and international partners.

Al-Abdulghani said the forum aims to support sustainable development by enhancing innovation and stimulating economic growth. 

He also stressed the vital role that entrepreneurs play in diversifying the economy and promoting sustainability, as well as enhancing innovation, which is essential for transitioning to a knowledge-based economy.

Al-Abdulghani further highlighted the chamber’s interest in supporting entrepreneurs, helping them start their businesses and facilitating their participation in exhibitions, both domestically and internationally, that the chamber organises or takes part in.

The WEIF was opened by the Abdullah bin Adel Fakhroo, Bahrain’s Minister of Industry and Commerce, while the executive secretary of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), as well as Maria Fernand Garza, chairperson of the International Chamber of Commerce, spoke at the opening ceremony via video conference technology.

The forum’s working sessions addressed a number of topics, such as building sustainable partnerships and creating a brighter future for Arab and African entrepreneurs. They also dealt with sustainable smart financial inclusion, entrepreneurship, and innovation-enabling ecosystems, and investment pathways to achieve the SDGs.
