I wish everyone warm wishes and hope you all had a pleasant Eid holiday.
It is my pleasure to share another recap of the QFC's exciting activities, which are instrumental in attracting business to Qatar and cultivating a dynamic and supportive ecosystem that propels businesses towards success.
In June, we welcomed 23 new companies, building up our community and bringing our total number of firms to 1,660. Collectively, these firms make a significant contribution to the growth and diversification of Qatar's economy.
The QFC actively supported and participated in several events that served as platforms for knowledge sharing and promoting novel business models and disruptive solutions. These events included Finnovex Qatar, the Inclusive Fintech Forum, Vision Golfe Business Forum, and Astana Finance Days 2023. Engaging in these events aligns with our efforts to foster innovation, empower entrepreneurs, and expand our network.
We remained committed to exploring new partnerships and opportunities to expand our reach and enhance Qatar's business environment. In June, we signed a significant Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Elegante Healthcare WLL, extending our presence into the rapidly growing healthcare sector in Qatar, which stands to benefit greatly from innovative financial services.
Finally, we are awaiting board approval on the QFC Strategy 2030, which outlines our roadmap for further elevating our contribution to the financial sector and the sustainable development of Qatar's economy. This comprehensive strategy specifies our focus sectors and goals for the next seven years. Surpassing the targets set in our Strategic Vision for 2022, I am confident that we will once again achieve success in meeting our new objectives.
I take immense pride in the milestones we have achieved as a community and the significant contributions made by each of our members. Together, let us continue to shape the future of Qatar's financial and economic landscape. As we embark on this exciting journey ahead, I encourage everyone to strive for excellence and reach new heights.
