“This MoU is an important step for us, as it will broaden Qatar’s access and expertise to digital technology while opening doors to strengthen relations with Poland, this being the first QFC partnership with the country. This partnership also reinforces our commitment to bolster Qatar’s digital sector. With shared objectives for growth, I am confident that Digital Poland Foundation and QFC will have many successful initiatives ahead to upsurge learning, elevate skills, and advance innovation in both Poland and Qatar’s digital sector.”

His Excellency Janusz Janke, the Ambassador of the Republic of Poland to the State of Qatar stated that, “After the success of the 3rd Qatar-Poland New Tech Forum on 30 May 2022, co-organized by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland and Qatar-Poland Business Council, with QFC as Strategic Partner, the signing of the MoU is yet another sign of the outstanding potential for cooperation between entities from Poland and Qatar in the new technologies sector. We commend the QFC for its leadership in this regard.”

“Thanks to the agreement with the Qatar Financial Centre, we can convince more dynamic startups and global corporations to come to Poland and facilitate local leaders’ expansion into other markets like Qatar. It is also an opportunity to exchange experience and knowledge about the Polish and Qatari ecosystems of the new technology sector,” said Mr. Piotr Mieczkowski, Managing Director, Digital Poland Foundation.
