Welcome note.

I am excited to welcome you to the QFC Awards 2023, a platform dedicated to recognising QFC firms for their exceptional work across various areas of business operation.

We launched this Awards programme in 2018 under the title "Qatar Business Awards" to acknowledge the excellent work of QFC firms and highlight the value of their achievements to our mission and vision for Qatar. In the second edition of this Awards, we expanded our scope to accommodate companies in Qatar's broader business community.

While we cherish the legacy of the Qatar Business Awards, we must adapt our initiatives to better serve our growing stakeholders. This year, this prestigious Awards is relaunched as "The QFC Awards", marked by a renewed focus on celebrating excellence within the thriving QFC community.

By recognising and celebrating the achievement and excellent work of our firms, our valued partners who are pivotal in our journey to establishing Qatar as a leading global financial and commercial capital, we believe that we can make an even more significant impact on Qatar's business ecosystem. This shift in focus aims to foster stronger connections and collaboration within our community, which will be observed during the forthcoming Awards ceremony.

We are excited about this new chapter and look forward to continuing our tradition of showcasing excellence and honouring exceptional business values and practices.
