TBY's Almanza declared: “The Business Year is grateful to QBWA and all the female representatives for their support in preparing this new edition on Qatar. Special attention needs to be given as well to international companies that have invested in Qatar and decided to appoint females in leadership positions, as they are contributing significantly to gender equality."
