Qatar Islamic Bank ( QIB ) – the leading Islamic bank in Qatar – is to participate in the ICC
WCF 8th World Chambers Congress hosted by the Qatar Chamber of Commerce & Industry,
which is to be held in Doha on 22-25 April 2013 at the Qatar Conference Centre, under the
patronage of the Emir H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.
QIB will have its own stand at the exhibition, which will run in parallel with the summit, and
aims at reinforcing Qatari projects, while also offering Islamic banking and finance solutions
for all companies working in trade and commerce, to strengthen imports and exports that
constitute a key pillar of the State’s economy.
QIB is considered a strategic partner in trade finance, having contributed to the financing
of Qatari businesses by QR 6.5 billion in 2012 against QR 2.9 billion in 2011, i.e. a growth of
124%. This is a token of its strong support of the Qatari trade and commerce sector, and its
increasing contribution in the national economy.
Organised biennially by the ICC World Chambers Federation (WCF), the World Chambers
Congress is the only international forum for chamber of commerce leaders to share
experiences and best practice, exchange insights, develop networks and address the current
business issues affecting their communities.
This event assembles a global community of more than 12,000 chambers of commerce,
their presidents and CEOs, business members, and influential world leaders. It provides a
unique opportunity for interaction between delegates from more than 100 countries.
