Min­is­ter of Econ­omy and Commerce inau­gu­rates CSR Qatar 2015 Fo­rum and re­news sup­port for pri­vate sec­tor.

The two-day fo­rum, dubbed “Trans­form­ing CSR to Sup­port a So­cially Re­spon­si­ble and Sus­tain­able Econ­omy,” brought to­gether CSR ex­perts, cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tives and gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials along with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of non-govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions and uni­ver­si­ties from across Qatar. Qatar's Min­is­ter of Econ­omy and Commerce HE Sheikh Ahmed bin Jas­sim Al Thani in­au­gu­rated the an­nual cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity fo­rum ‘CSR Qatar,' which was held in Doha for the third con­sec­u­tive year. The in­cor­po­ra­tion of CSR strate­gies into the daily oper­a­tions of com­pa­nies and their ac­tiv­i­ties in Qatar will lead to tan­gi­ble pos­i­tive re­sults within Qatari so­ci­ety and will have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the pri­vate sec­tor prac­tices, HE Al Thani said. HE Sheikh Ahmed bin Jas­sim Al Thani high­lighted that the gov­ern­ment is also work­ing on the de­vel­op­ment of lo­gis­tics ar­eas south of Qatar. The lo­gis­tics zones rep­re­sent one of the largest eco­nomic projects cur­rently un­der de­vel­op­ment in Qatar. The fo­rum in­cluded sev­eral work­shops on a num­ber of CSR-re­lated top­ics such as sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, labour rights and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity in the field of sports.
