On this occasion, Ms. Mariam bint Abdullatif Al Mannai – Director of the Community Services Department, and the Director in charge of running NAMA’s affairs, said:
“I was pleased to participate in this special event due to its important role in introducing the public, including all segments of the Qatari society, to our efforts exerted in the field of sustainable social development by providing all forms of support for small and medium-sized entrepreneurial projects, and paving the way for innovative entrepreneurs to launch their businesses towards success. The event is also the perfect occasion to inform them of the projects’ inner workings, get them in touch with the projects’ entrepreneurs and preview discover their products in real life, all the way to encouraging community members and its institutions to participate in supporting such projects, so that we all become shareholders in achieving the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
Participation in such major events is considered the perfect way to enhance the level of awareness of entrepreneurship in the Qatari society, which in turn is one of the key channels towards achieving human capital development, leading to the development, prosperity and sustainability of the Qatari economy.
It is worth mentioning that NAMA Center has also participated in the 2017 Qatar ExxonMobil Open for men's tennis, which took place in Doha from the 2nd till the 7th of January, in order to shed more light on the status of entrepreneurial projects in Qatar as well as introduce the largest possible number of community members to NAMA’s outstanding services to the owners and pioneers of Small and Medium Enterprises incubated by the Center, in addition to promoting those projects and their products.
