Qatar Airways participates in ‘Moushtarayat 2019’

Qatar Airways has participated in ‘Moushtarayat 2019’, the fourth annual Government Procurement and Contracting Conference and Exhibition, which concluded yesterday.
The three-day procurement and contracting exhibition was officially opened on March 31 by the deputy governor of Qatar Central Bank and Qatar Development Bank (QDB) vice chairman, Sheikh Mohamed bin Hamad al-Thani.
Qatar Airways group chief executive HE Akbar al-Baker said: “Qatar Airways is delighted to be present at this year’s Moushtarayat Conference and Exhibition. At this important conference, representatives from the airline discussed potential procurement opportunities for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
“Qatar Airways is a firm believer that SMEs in Doha are vital to sustaining the growth of our economy, and we will continue to support their initiatives, as they are key to the development of a diversified economy in Qatar.”
Moushtarayat aims to create opportunities for local suppliers and small and medium enterprises by providing access to a network of prominent buyers and suppliers for government, semi-government, and large private entities. This initiative is in line with the Qatar’s National Vision 2030, which aims to make Qatar a country that is economically advanced and self-sustaining, with a robust, diversified local economy.
This year’s conference included several interactive sessions that aim to educate attendees on the procedures involved in partaking in future tender and application processes successfully.
Organised by QDB, this year’s Moushtarayat conference and exhibition was held in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance, and in partnership with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI), and Public Works Authority (Ashghal).
Last year’s Moushtarayat conference and exhibition was a great success, with 40 exhibitors and 2,000 job opportunities for SMEs created, with an estimated cumulative value worth approximately QR6.5bn.
A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Business Class’ by the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Business Class Seat’, ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’.
Qatar Airways seamlessly connects passengers to more than 160 destinations across six continents via its award-winning Hamad International Airport in Doha. The carrier will launch a host of exciting new destinations in 2019, including Lisbon, Portugal; Malta; Rabat, Morocco; Davao, Philippines; Langkawi, Malaysia; Izmir, Turkey; and Mogadishu, Somalia.
