MultaQa Qatar celebrates 10th anniversary.

Over the years MultaQa has firmly established itself as a platform of the risk and insurance industry in the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA). Since 2007 senior insurance executives and leading experts come to Doha and debate for two days the trends and developments, which currently dominate their agenda.

"It fills us with pride to host the MENA insurance and reinsurance industry for the 10th consecutive time," said Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, CEO of the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC). "We initiated the conference because insurance and reinsurance are essential ingredients for economic and societal progress, in particular in an emerging market like the MENA region. Looking back over the past years, MultaQa Qatar has certainly contributed to raising awareness of the benefits of insurance and reinsurance in our region. At the same time, it has also demonstrated to the industry our region's potential for their growth and development."

This year's conference, which again will be hosted by the Qatar Central Bank and the QFC, is opened with two keynote addresses from the Minister of Finance of the State of Qatar and Chairman of the QFC, HE Ali Shareef Al-Emadi, and Qatar Central Bank Governor, HE Sheikh Abdullah bin Saoud Al Thani. The international industry keynote address will be delivered by Anna Maria D'Hulster, Secretary General and Managing Director of the global insurance industry's leading think tank, the Geneva Association. As in prior years, the keynotes are followed by an executive panel. Moderated by Dr. Kai-Uwe Schanz, Chairman of MultaQa Qatar since 2008, Ali Al Falada, Senior Deputy CEO & Group President of QIC, Michael Jensen, Managing Director MENA of AIG, Romel Tabaja, Deputy CEO of Trust Re and David Watson, CEO Reinsurance EMEA of XL Catlin will discuss the accelerating pace of internationalisation of some of the region's re/insurers and its implications.
