This year's WEF annual meeting focused on a number of critical issues ranging from geopolitical challenges, global economic events, climate change, food security and globalisation, and saw the participation of more than 2,700 leaders from 130 countries.

During the Annual Meeting, Al Jaida and Sheikha Alanoud engaged in a number of discussions, private meetings and bilateral talks with corporate CEOs, executive directors, as well as finance and economic leaders, exploring prospects of cooperation and potential business opportunities in light of the unique services and benefits QFC offers to companies and foreign investors looking at establishing a business in Qatar, a market ranking first among the top FDI destinations globally in 2022. They also highlighted the QFC efforts to attract investments in vital sectors such as banking and finance, energy, infrastructure, agriculture, transportation and aviation, as well as technology and digital sectors, in line with Qatar's 2030 National Vision diversification strategy.
