Qatar Foundation Welcomes World Economic Forum President Børge Brende To Education City


Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation, today welcomed Børge Brende, President, World Economic Forum, to Education City.

“Without quality education you will not do well in the 4th industrial revolution,” said Mr. Brende. “There’s a clear correlation between the amount of resources you use on quality education and the future competitiveness of your country. So the work of Qatar Foundation is very important.”

As part of the visit, Mr. Brende was also given an overview of QF’s mission through a presentation and a tour of the open-air viewing platform at the 2015 building (QF Headquarters).
