Ooredoo CEO Shares Insights and Expertise at Russia’s Premier International Economic Forum

Doha, Qatar

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer at Ooredoo, has joined a panel discussion on the importance of innovation in telecommunications at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

Senior-level participants shared their thoughts on the role of innovation in business strategy in their industry, and insights into opportunities available for both Qatari and Russian technology start-ups and SMEs with their organisations.

Sheikh Mohammed detailed Ooredoo’s longstanding investment in innovation, highlighting its partnerships with global innovation leaders and Qatari entities and its commitment to initiatives promoting innovation in the telecommunications industry.

Ooredoo is currently part of a delegation of companies representing Qatar at SPIEF, being held from 2-5 June 2021 in Russia.

Several of Ooredoo’s executive senior managers are attending the event, which is intended to act as a platform for members of the international business community to meet and discuss key economic issues pertinent to Russia, emerging markets and the world as a whole.

The event also covers social and cultural issues and technological development, and provide an opportunity to improve business collaboration between Qatar and Russia.

Ooredoo is hosting a booth at the event, focusing on its path to the major football event being held in Doha in 2022, and its executive senior management is meeting with some of Russia’s leading technology companies and telecom operators.

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulla Al Thani, CEO at Ooredoo, said: “I was honoured to take part in this valuable panel discussion with several of my counterparts from both Qatari and Russian entities. As a leading telecommunications operator reliant on groundbreaking technology to enable us to maintain our position as an industry pioneer, forums such as these are the ideal platform on which we can share insight and expertise for the benefit of us all. We extend our thanks to the organisers for the opportunity to join the panel, and look forward to more such opportunities as the event continues.”
