Our bank’s NSD activities reflect our commitment to support the government’s country wide initiatives to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for all citizens and residents in Qatar,” according to QIB group chief executive Bassel Gamal.
The National Sport Day, launched in 2012, aimed at educating people on the importance of physical activity and build a sustainable healthy culture across the society.

It is contributing to fostering a culture of sports in the larger community and we are really happy to know that our employees and their families realise the significance of this national initiative and choose to always participate,” Gamal added.
