Qatar Insurance celebrated Al Annabi’s victory in the 2018 Asian Games with Qatar Handball Federation at an event held at the Sheraton Grand Doha Resort and Convention Hotel recently.
The victory meant that Qatar successfully defended their title they had first won at the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea.
The celebration was attended by Salem al-Mannai, deputy group president and CEO QIC Mena region, and other QIC officials. He also welcomed Qatar Handball Federation president Ahmed al-Shaabi, coaches, and players of the national team.

Al-Mannai said: “Being the leading national insurer, QIC takes pride in extending its relentless support and good wishes to Qatar Handball Federation. In fact, we consider such initiatives as a way of demonstrating our commitment towards corporate social responsibility and promoting the incredible sporting talent in Qatar.
“Under the wise leadership of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and guidance of the President of Qatar Olympic Committee, HE Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad al-Thani, the team has made a significant contribution towards achieving Qatar National Vision 2030.”
