The Qatar International Center for Conciliation and Arbitration (QICCA) at Qatar Chamber recently participated as a strategic partner at the “7th Qatar Business Law Forum Conference 2022” which kicked off on Wednesday at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
Hosted by LexisNexis Middle Eastin in strategic partnership with QICCA and the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the conference is attended by a crowd of experts, lawyers, and arbitrators.
It covers the latest legal developments and trends in Qatar and discusses several topics related to foreign investment laws, dispute resolution and mediation mechanisms.
In a statement, QICCA board member for International Relations Sheikh Dr. Thani bin Ali Al-Thani said that the conference comes at an important time, as Qatar’s economic sectors are preparing for the host of the FIFA World Cup 2022.
HE noted that it constitutes a great opportunity to discuss economic laws and their role in facilitating the business environment in the state and supporting efforts to transform Qatar into a global economic and trade hub, as well as the relationship of laws with trade and its impact on business.
Sheikh Thani stressed the QICCA’s keenness to provide strategic sponsorship for the conference, which sheds light on new trends in business and legal developments in Qatar.
HE indicated that Qatar has issued a host of legislation and laws in recent years that have contributed to advancing economic development and attracting more foreign capital in various sectors, in addition to keeping the balance between the privileges and incentives offered by the state to investors and their duties towards the state and the market.
The conference includes four sessions. The first panel touches on international investments, mergers, acquisitions, and compliance, while the second panel deals with means of dispute settlement.
The third session focuses on business laws, while the fourth session reviews the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
