Manama, August 22, 2007
Bahrain-based BDO Jawad Habib have relocated their Qatar offices to the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) in West Bay, Doha.
BDO Jawad Habib-Qatar aims at capitalising on a mutual benefit from this long-term investment.
"Our move to QFC Tower is yet another milestone in enhancing our operations," BDO Jawad Habib public relations and marketing manager Fatima Al A'ali said.
"In view of the rapid changes Qatar is experiencing due to the current dynamic economic boom we have strengthened our practices and operations by bringing in more professionals to meet the requirements of our clients."
QFC is a vibrant hub for financial and professional services where, BDO operates as a full-fledged professional services provider, striving to encourage institutions that can help develop new and genuine revenue streams to both Qatar and the region.
The Qatar Financial Centre Authority is the commercial, administrative and legislative body responsible for driving the commercial strategy and for developing relationships with the global corporate community and other key institutions both within and outside of Qatar.
The regulatory authority is a corporate body owned by the state that regulates financial services firms who operate in or from the Qatar Financial Centre. It has a broad range of regulatory powers to effectively and efficiently authorize, supervise and, where necessary, discipline regulated firms and individuals.
“The Middle East is a region of great opportunity for all types of companies - not just large multinationals. But doing business in the GCC region can still be challenging. With the rapid pace of economic globalisation, small businesses in Qatar can no longer afford to ignore the challenge of international commerce and thus, by partnering with BDO Jawad Habib our clients will secure and maintain a ‘success’ track,” she added.
