The MoU is set to allow both parties to continue coordinating their efforts during the research phase of TBY’s next Qatar publication, The Business Year: Qatar 2025, which will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the media group’s coverage of the local economy. Following a decade-long tradition, the 2025 issue will prove to be a valuable tool for anyone wanting to better understand the economic and business dynamics of this key GCC member state.
