QNB Group discussed its new vision for 2020 “to become a leading bank” in Middle East and Africa and in Asia by 2020. The leading financial institution in the Middle East and Africa region recently held a strategy conference in this connection at the Sharq Village and Spa in Doha.
The two-day conference was attended by the group’s executive management, general managers and CEOs from across its international network. QNB said, “The conference carries great importance to the group’s future direction, as it comes at the end of a phase of its global journey with the realisation of the group’s 2017 vision of becoming a Middle East and Africa icon and the focus on QNB Group’s strategy for the coming period to achieve the group’s vision for 2020. The efforts in this area will include understanding this vision, defining the key strategic priorities toward its realisation, and identifying potential opportunities to capitalise upon.”
Topics of focus also included the group’s new international governance model, the strategies to be followed across its international network to increase and sustain growth, asset and wealth management, global market updates and trends, and the group’s global expansion strategy. As well as discussing the group’s strategy, the conference presents a “great opportunity” for networking across QNB’s growing international network, as well as a chance to present, discuss, and review the progress achieved during the previous period and the group’s business plans and to help it sustain and build upon this progress and growth and capitalise on its success. QNB Group’s presence through its subsidiaries and associate companies extends to more than 30 countries across three continents providing a comprehensive range of advanced products and services.
The total number of employees is more than 27,300 operating through more than 1,200 locations, with an ATM network of more than 4,300 machines.
