On the occasion, Sheikh Abdullah said, “We’d like to thank the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy for their support and confidence in Qatar’s national insurance market and in particular this National Insurance Consortium. The consortium will further develop the local insurance market, and shall help boost the national economy as well through maximum local retention of premium and risk. It also demonstrates best practice in enhanced public-private partnerships, which is in in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.”

He added “We have a long history of delivering on our promises to our policyholders and are fully capable of meeting their expectations through our professionalism and balance sheet strength. We’d also like to thank HE the Prime Minister Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, for his keen interest in the development of the local insurance industry and his guidance in helping Qatar’s national insurance companies play a larger role in the development of national economy.”
