Dear members,

We are proud to invite you for our end of the year “2015 Christmas Event” at the ZLOUNGE by Zengo.

The Zlounge will be officially open for just one day but we succeeded to arrange the special VIP area for our monthly network gathering at Thursday 17th of December at the 62nd Floor of theKempinski City Doha Westbay Area.

Just enjoy the breathtaking views of Doha from the highest building and celebrate the End of the Year, X-Mas and National Day with a cocktail reception and drinks before returning back home. Of course we will serve a wide variety of delicious finger foods during the evening.

You will be the first ones to celebrate at this special venue. We hope to all see you next week!

Reminder, the December Monthly event is on a Thursday the 17th instead of our regular Wednesday Borrel.

Kind Regards,

DBCQ

We would like to invited you all to our upcoming healthcare event on Wednesday 9th of December. The event will start at 7pm until 9.30pm in the Hilton Hotel Doha.

Human beings consider health and wellbeing to be the most important aspects of life. However we have to face that we often are confronted directly or indirectly with disease or illness. How do we deal with these challenges and what are the solutions to maintain or restore health and wellbeing.

  • Hans Kerkkamp MD PhD, Deputy Chief Medical Academic and Research Affairs at Hamad Medical Corporation will focus on the definition of health from different perspectives.
  • Declan Finbarr Oneill MD, Executive Director Healthcare Strategy & Planning, Health Planning and Programs at HMC, will present the strategy and goals of the Hamad Medical Corporation.

The Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, H.E. Mrs. Yvette van Eechoud, along with senior executives of selected members of the Dutch Business Council Qatar (DBCQ), visited the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) on Sunday, October 18th 2015.

 

The delegation met SC Secretary General Hassan Al Thawadi and were briefed on the progress achieved to date towards the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™, as well as engaging in a productive discussion on progress made on the SC workers’ welfare standards.

“The Dutch government and companies are committed to very high standards on corporate social responsibility” said the Ambassador. “We need to make sure that those standards are being maintained at all times. That is why this gathering is crucial to understand the challenges and to tackle them together. Our joint role is to make sure that in the delivery and legacy of the 2022 World Cup there are only winners, no losers, also in terms of human and natural resources. We walk the talk.”

A wide range of Dutch companies with a presence in Qatar joined the visit. During the meeting, a productive discussion took place on the implementation of workers’ welfare standards, the challenges and lessons learned in Qatar and the broader region.
