Qatar Financial Centre creates economic adviser job

Qatar Financial CentreThe Qatar Financial Centre Authority has appointed Haitham Al-Salama to the newly created role of chief economic adviser, tasked with developing the centre’s economic strategy.

A Qatari national, Al-Salama joins from Sidra Medical and Research Centre, part of the charitable Qatar Foundation, where he was the director of science policy and management.

Al-Salama, who was educated at the King Saud University in Saudi Arabia, Stanford and Harvard, will work with the chief executive of the centre, Yousuf Mohamed Al-Jaida, who says the appointment shows the centre, “has once again attracted top Qatari talent due to its excellent reputation within Qatar’s business community”.

Offering its own laws and regulations, and allowing full foreign ownership of companies, the Qatar Financial Centre was designed to attract international financial firms to set up businesses in the Gulf state.
