November 16, 2020

The “wise leadership of Qatar” has attached great importance to the governance of companies as it constitutes a key driver of economic development, said Sheikh Dr Thani bin Ali Al Thani, Qatar International Centre for Conciliation and Arbitration’s (QICCA) board member for international relations.
Addressing the third edition of the “Conference on Listed Corporate Governance” held on Thursday via videoconference, Sheikh Thani said Qatari legislation and regulations have succeeded in establishing an effective application of governance principles and standards.
He said the public shareholding companies spearheading the private sector are committed to writing annual reports showing their performance, achievements, and legal obligations in the field of governance.
Sheikh Thani noted that the Law No 11 of 2015 has allotted a full chapter for public shareholding companies and placed many articles and rules related to governance.
He also referred to the corporate governance system and the legal entities listed in the main market issued by the Qatar Financial Market Authority (QFMA) Board Decision No 5 of 2016 and to Circular No 68 of 2015 issued by the Qatar Central Bank on principles of governance in banks.
The conference deliberated on the major issues and developments in the fields of governance and reviewed leading local, regional and global practices in this regard.
During the event, the ‘Governance Reports’ book was also launched.
