THE EVENT, OF­FI­CIALLY SPON­SORED BY Q-AUTO, WAS HELD TO MARK QATAR'S ACHIEVE­MENTS IN VAR­I­OUS SEC­TORS LAST YEAR IN THE FACE OF THE BLOCK­ADE IM­POSED ON IT BY SOME OF ITS NEIGH­BOURS.

Mr Yousuf bin Jas­sim Al Dar­wish, hon­ourable Chair­man of Oryx Pub­lish­ing & Ad­ver­tis­ing, and Mr Faleh bin Hus­sein Al Ha­jri, Di­rec­tor of Re­search and Cul­tural Stud­ies De­part­ment, Min­istry of Cul­ture and Sports, were among the prom­i­nent per­son­al­i­ties who were present at the func­tion. Mr Al Ha­jri at­tended the event on be­half of HE Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser Al Ali, the Min­is­ter of Cul­ture and Sports. Apart from them, mem­bers of the press and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the com­pa­nies who par­tic­i­pated in the all-im­por­tant 14th is­sue of ProgressQatar at­tended the event.

Dur­ing his speech, Mr. Yousuf thanked all the par­tic­i­pants of Progress Qatar 2017-18, and said that Qatar's econ­omy had thrived de­spite the em­bargo im­posed on it by some coun­tries in June last year. He also stressed the im­por­tance of the lat­est edi­tion of

ProgressQatar be­cause it high­lighted how well the na­tion had coped with the sit­u­a­tion.

And then, the mo­ment that ev­ery­one had been wait­ing for fi­nally ar­rived: the un­veil­ing of ProgressQatar 2017-2018 by Mr Yousuf and Mr Al Ha­jri.

This was fol­lowed by the awards cer­e­mony – giv­ing away of ProgressQatar 2017-2018 tro­phies – which was ini­ti­ated by Mr Al Ha­jri re­ceiv­ing an award from Mr Yousuf. Q-Auto, the of­fi­cial spon­sor for the event, was then pre­sented with an award by Mr Yousuf and Mr Al Ha­jri, which was re­ceived by the com­pany's gen­eral man­ager, Ahmed Shariefi.

A spe­cial award was also given to Qatari artist Ali Has­san, whose paint­ing was used for the cover of ProgressQatar 2017-18. Mr Yousuf and Mr Al Ha­jri then pre­sented awards to the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the par­tic­i­pat­ing com­pa­nies who were present at the cer­e­mony.

The event con­cluded with a group photo of Mr Yousuf, Mr Al Ha­jri and other par­tic­i­pants of ProgressQatar 2017-18
