The Organizing Committee of Expo 2023 Doha announced a landmark partnership agreement with Ooredoo, naming the company as the event’s Strategic Partner.

The official signing ceremony took place in the presence of Qatar’s Minister of Municipality HE Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaie, Expo Secretary General Mohamed Ali Al Khoury, Ooredoo Chief Executive Officer Sheikh Ali Bin Jabor Al Thani and Ooredoo’s Chief Business Officer Thani Al Malki.

The Expo 2023 Doha Horticultural Exhibition, which is slated to kick off on October 2, will offer a platform for innovation, cooperation, and sustainability-focused global dialogue.

The new partnership with Ooredoo will help cement Qatar’s commitment towards sustainable development and will highlight the numerous sustainability initiatives launched by Ooredoo as part of its corporate social responsibility engagement.

Ooredoo will play a pivotal role in supporting the overarching goals of Expo 2023 Doha by helping promote sustainable practices and face global challenges. The partnership will also go hand-in-hand with Qatar’s commitment towards bolstering sustainability across all facets of society and relevant sectors.

Commenting on the new partnership, Al Khoury said: “We’re pleased to welcome Ooredoo as a Strategic Partner for Expo 2023 Doha. The company’s long and proven experience in the telecommunications sector, as well as its social responsibility and sustainability initiatives, perfectly align with the core values of our event. Together, we aim to create a lasting legacy, inspire change, and pave the way for a more sustainable future.”

Al Malki said: “We’re delighted and proud to be partnering with Doha Expo Organising Committee to help drive progress towards a key goal of Qatar National Vision 2030 — becoming an advanced society capable of achieving sustainable development. Our corporate social responsibility aligns with this vision and goal, and we’re committed to helping share valuable messages about the importance of sustainability through our CSR activities. We look forward to a successful event, and to continuing our support for sustainability in the future.”

Meanwhile, Expo 2023 Doha’s Organizing Committee also signed a partnership agreement with Qatar Development Bank (QDB) to promote and support entrepreneurship throughout the duration of this six-month-long event. 

Al Khoury and QDB’s CEO Abdulrahman Hesham Al Sowaidi formalised the agreement to instil a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship within the Global Horticultural Exhibition. 

As per the agreement, QDB will serve as a collaborative partner in organizing events and activities dedicated to fostering innovation within agriculture and sustainability and support for entrepreneurs. QDB will also host activities geared towards educating young entrepreneurs about sustainable development and financial awareness. 

A series of educational activations with the theme ‘Innovation and Sustainability’ will cater to youth and general visitors alike.

The bank’s flagship ‘ROWAD’ entrepreneurship conference, hackathon and awards will also draw thousands of visitors from across the GCC and the wider region, highlighting the importance of technological advancements and promoting environmentally friendly initiatives.

“We’re pleased to cooperate with QDB, the country’s first supporter of creative ideas and entrepreneurial efforts, in the context of Expo’s keenness to support pioneering efforts in the field of sustainability as well as support innovation in the field of modern agriculture,” said Al Khoury.

“We’re pleased to partner with the organizing committee of Expo Doha 2023, which will contribute to the development of our business landscape and the economy at large. As the development partner of the largest exhibition in Qatar, we look forward to achieving our goals of promoting a culture of entrepreneurship and contributing to innovative and sustainable ventures across various industries,” said Al Sowaidi.
