The event was attended by Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani, chairman; Bassel Gamal, Group CEO; and the executive management of the bank.
Sheikh Jassim said QIB is proud to see its employees partake in the National Day celebrations, which the bank views as an integral part of its mission. “The 18th of December marks an auspicious occasion for Qatar, a day where pride and patriotism resonates throughout the nation. It is a call for all of our employees to come together – citizens and residents alike – to celebrate our beloved country, Qatar.
“Our event is also part of our effort to promote interaction with the community by actively partaking in events and initiatives that serve the local community, thus reaffirming the leading role we play as part of our national contribution.”
